"If the traveler can find a virtuous and wise companion let him go with her joyfully and overcome the dangers of the way."

Mary Webster

Teacher, Spokane Vipassana Meditation Community

Two of the consistent interests in my life have been a curiosity about the workings of the mind and a desire to be of service to others. By choosing a career in mental health nursing, I have been able to pursue these interests. I received a Masters Degree in this field in 1975 and have been practicing and/or teaching ever since.

My meditation practice began in 1996 when I attended a retreat with Jason Siff. Both Recollective Awareness meditation and Jason’s teachings on the dharma resonated with me immediately. I entered the Skillful Meditation Project teacher training in 2001 in order to deepen my practice and understandings.

I currently lead weekly Recollective Awareness meditation sitting groups in Spokane, Washington for adults as well as teens. I also lead or co-lead quarterly retreats with other SMP sangha teachers and offer one-day workshops. I welcome invitations to teach in the Northwest. I am the resident teacher for the Spokane Vipassana Meditation Community and presently serve on the Skillful Meditation Project board of directors.

“By your
own efforts
waken yourself,
watch yourself,
and live joyfully.”
