About

Dawn has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005, regularly sitting long intensive meditation retreats in Canada, United States, Thailand, Burma, and South Africa. Since discovering the Dharma, Dawn has graduated from Spirit Rock's Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation Training and the Dedicated Practitioners' Program, as well as the first teacher development group of True North Insight. She is a value and purpose-oriented teacher with a passion for inclusivity, particularly how societal conditioning hinders diversity, equity and inclusion on various levels. 

In 2007 she co-founded the Yoga Mala Foundation, a Montreal-based non-profit organization that supports the development of yoga programs in underserved communities. Dawn is also a board member for True North Insight, a charitable organization offering a full schedule of Buddhist Insight (Vipassana) meditation retreats and courses in English and French. 

Dawn is a meditation retreat teacher for teenagers with Inward Bound Mindfulness Education and is currently in Spirit Rock's 4-year Dharma Teacher Training. She is known to teach with a playful, dynamic, and heartfelt approach, and leads daylong retreats and mindfulness workshops in Canada and the US.

Meditation

Countless studies have shown that mindfulness meditation decreases stress, lowers blood pressure, improves brain function and the immune system, enhances sleep, and increases tolerance for discomfort and pain. In addition to all these known benefits, it also makes you a better human being.

This may sound like a tall order, yet when you break down your seemingly one extended life into individual moments, choosing wisely and living with heart becomes more accessible.

With sustained practice, mindfulness meditation teaches you to see clearly the things you don't normally see because you're distracted, hiding, overlooking them, or running from them. When you slow down enough, the things you think matter - the superficial things - fall away, and what is revealed is how your mind functions, and how your heart responds.

This is what makes Dawn passionate about spreading the practice of mindfulness through yoga and meditation.

 

There are a few ways in which you can walk this path with Dawn:

You are the sky. Everything else - it's just the weather.
