Lienchi was born into a Buddhist family. She began her path of meditation in 1986 with Thay Thich Nhat Hanh in the Mahayana tradition. In 1994, she met Venerable Khippapanno, and his kindness and wisdom inspired Lienchi to practice in the Theravada tradition. Since 1998, Lienchi has been visiting Asia regularly and has practiced with Luang Por Sumedho, Sayadaw U Pandita, and Sayadaw U Tejaniya. Lienchi has been ordained 3 times and has attended many retreats ranging from 10 days to 2 years with Venerable Khippapanno, Luang Por Sumedho, Sayadaw U Pandita, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, and other IMS and IRC teachers.
In 2015, Lienchi left her career as an architect to practice full-time in Burma with her primary teacher, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, for 2 years.
Through personal experience, Lienchi knows awareness is the path by which wisdom arises. She has experienced joy, healing, forgiveness, metta, and freedom of mind. In 2017, Sayadaw encouraged Lienchi to share her understanding of meditation with others. Since then, Lienchi has been sharing how she knows the mind through a natural and relaxed continuity. She has a practical, intuitive, and compassionate approach to the development of wisdom through the cultivation of awareness.
Recently, Lienchi has been teaching at retreats organized by InsightLA where she wishes to share her understanding with others and to spread generosity and wisdom.
