Dear Meditation, When we first met during my travels in Thailand, I never expected you would change my life the way you did. I know, it hasn’t always been easy, and I sometimes (often) take you for granted. But if there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that you’ll always be there for me […]
Dawn has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005, and has completed numerous silent residential retreats in Canada, the US, Thailand, and Burma, including a 3-month silent retreat at Insight Meditation Society. She is also the creator and voice behind the guided meditation program Awaken Presence. Currently, Dawn is a student in two multi-year teacher training programs to enable her to lead silent residential retreats for both teenagers with Inward Bound Meditation and adults with Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Dawn firmly believes that how we offer ourselves in practice reflects how we offer ourselves in life, inspiring her to find new ways to extend her practice beyond the meditation cushion - and encouraging her students to do the same.
