Senior Teacher, Teacher Council
Gulwinder “Gullu” Singh teaches Dharma and secular mindfulness, is a corporate real estate attorney and a dedicated Dharma practitioner with particular interest in integrating the insights and cultivation from retreat practice into daily life and work. While he learned meditation as a child, he found his own practice in 1993 in Transcendental Meditation, which he used to navigate the intense work stress of being an attorney. In 2006, at his first retreat at Spirit Rock, Gullu found his spiritual home in Vipassana and Theravada Buddhism. Since then, he has cumulatively done over 200 days of silent meditation retreat including the Spirit Rock one and two month sits.
Gullu completed InsightLA’s one-year Mindfulness Facilitator Training Group, Spirit Rock’s 2-year Dedicated Practitioner Program and the training required to teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. He regularly teaches both secular and Buddhist classes and groups at InsightLA, has taught mindfulness at the University of Southern California, has been a guest lecturer on mindfulness at UCLA Law School and taught mindfulness in law firms, to bar associations and in other corporate settings. He was recently invited to the 4-year Spirit Rock Teacher Training Program ending in 2020 which focuses on teaching in the silent retreat setting.
Gullu is deeply inspired to share meditation as a path to cope more effectively with the challenges of life and to inject more sanity, compassion, wisdom and well-being into the world.
