We will dive into what Insight meditation is, how to practice it on the cushion and embody it off the cushion and into the world.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Viktor E. Frankl
Training & Qualifications
I have been practicing insight meditation on and off all my life. I grew up in a boarding school for Tibetan Refugees in Northern India with great emphasis on compassion and meditation. The school was founded by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
I started taking this journey sincerely after moving to the U.S in 2007 where I encountered the inherent dissatisfaction and suffering of a culture that is entirely focused on material gain. It made me shift my perspective on what I want to do with this precious life and the opportunity to explore the depth of reality and this mind.
My daily practice is insight meditation and it has allowed me to observe how patterns arise, are maintained and enslaves us in goodness or badness.
I have gotten teachings from many of the well known meditation teachers like the 14th Dala Lama, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche of Naropa University and Shambala tradition, Pema Chodron, Tara Brach, Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche, Thrangu Rinpoche, Migyur Rinpoche and many others.

Penpa is such an amazing soul. I was lucky enough to cross her path and be next to her at a few Farmers Markets we had in our community. I am also lucky enough to be able to take her yoga classes, first hand. She does a wonderful job; coaching.. and helping you silent the chaos in your mind. If have the chance to try her Mindful Chili sauce, please take advantage.. it is SOOO GOOOD!! =] Penpa is a very talented entrepreneur that brings light in love to all situations, she enjoys building people up.. because what other way is there to go .. than UP ?

Penpa is a heart-centered being, who offers the world the gift of herself. Just being in her presence is delightful! And her Chili Sauce is amazing, made with love and Tibetan secrets.
Brett Engle wrote a recommendation for Penpa Dolma
Everything Penpa does is filled with love and a deep intention to help, and to help skillfully. She naturally creates experiences which expand our perspectives, pulling from a rich background of life experiences, ranging from overcoming great adversity to gratefully receiving the universe's abundance, and the ups and downs along the way.
Whatever she's working on, she does her best, giving 100% of her energy to create something extraordinary. If you've got Penpa on your side, then you're in good hands.

I'm not sure I've met anyone who "walks the talk" as closely as Penpa. She consciously approaches life from the heart. Her compassion, kindness, creativity, and authenticity make her a joy to be around!
About Penpa Dolma
A yoga teacher Student of Karma Explorer of mind Lover of life Believer of miracles Observer of patterns A composite of three different traditions - A Tibetan refugee, that's my tight root an...d grounding, an Indian dweller that loosened up that root a little bit by adding its own spice and songs and an American citizen getting used to the idea of freedom and liberty and the responsibility that comes along with it. I feel privileged to be in this country and I know this nation's potential to be a true global leader. I just want to be part of the solution. At your service. xo Turn all the external blame to oneself. Dissolve all self-blame into the expansiveness of compassionate emptiness . No blame remains. No guilt remains. Rest and remain. Simbi is a refuge to the idealist and the futurist in me. I dream of a world where we do things differently, where we value relationships, where vulnerability is courage and the shadow is honored and understood. I dream of a world where everyone lives truly making choices and not feel like this life is a burden. I want a world where we treat one another through the eyes of one family. Looking for collaboration here for a world dominion. Love warriors: let's connect, collaborate and create magic. :) I believe I am the change I have been looking for, the habits are hard to kick but when you have a community of kindred spirits - no habit is too hard to let go. show moreOpen to other proposals
