Gabrielle Hammond

Visiting Teacher

Gabrielle Hammond has been a Vipassana practitioner since 2008, has a regular retreat practice and has spent last four years devoting several hours a day to contemplative practice.

She is an acupuncturist and doctor of Taoist and Traditional Chinese Medicine for 22 years, under the tutelage of a 64th generation Taoist Master Chang Yi Hsiang, who initiated her journey into contemplative arts, meditation and qigong practice at a young age. Gabrielle continues to teach and practice qigong over 35 years later as the bedrock of her healing practice. She has also taught acupuncture and herbs.

She loves working with plants, both as an herbalist in healing and in the more subtle and energetic way we are connected with plants as allies. This love of plants has morphed into a love for Meditative Tea Ceremony as a heart practice.

She has a vision for our world in which we realize our interconnection with all beings and connect to the vibrational field that is attuned to the original brightness of the universe and all our actions of body, speech and mind are grounded in this attunement.
