Amana Brembry Johnson

Visiting Teacher

Amana Brembry Johnson has been a practitioner of Vipassana Meditation for more than two decades.  She is a spiritual teacher, mentor, and embodiment guide whose offerings are rooted in opening access to liberation teachings and practices for diverse communities.  As a spiritual mentor, Amana nurtures practitioners who wish to deepen and integrate meditation into daily life.  She has developed a form of contemplative movement that interweaves the wisdom of Dharma with Yoga, Qigong, and other embodiment practices that are informed by the ethics of social justice.  “I see meditation and movement as gateways to investigate and reprogram habitual impulses between mind, heart, and body to effect a more fulfilled life”.  An accomplished visual artist, Amana creates imagery that exposes emotional and spiritual barriers of the heart as gateways into kindness, compassion, and self-love.
