Justine Dawson is a teacher and guide of Dharma and intimacy. A 23 year practitioner of Insight meditation, she completed training as a teacher under Jack Kornfield in 2012. Together with Jack, as well as Insight LA Founder Trudy Goodman, she has supported retreats at Omega Institute, Mt Madonna and other venerable American spiritual institutions. In addition to her training and practice in traditional meditation and Buddhist theology, Justine has devoted over 12 years to engaged practice and teaching, particularly the realm of the erotic – connection, sex and desire. From the inside out she works with people to dismantle the shame, fear and judgment that prevents them from intimacy with all of life, excluding nothing. Penetrating, precise and deeply insightful, Justine is a translator between worlds, bridging the rational and instinctual, theoretical and visceral, spiritual and mundane.
