Susan Reviere, PhD, has studied Buddhism and mindfulness/meditation practices for more than 30 years, initially exploring the Thich Nhat Hanh and Zen traditions before settling into her spiritual home in the Insight tradition. She has studied and practiced intensively through one-on-one mentoring, residential retreats, sutta study, and intensive study courses with Dori Langevin, Tara Brach & the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, Lisa Ernst of One Dharma Nashville, Thanissara & Kittisaro & Sacred Mountain Sangha, Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia & Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, Mindful Schools, and Awareness Training Institute (ATI).
Susan is a graduate of the 2-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Program led by Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield and certified by ATI and UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, and she now serves as a mentor for this program training new teachers. She serves on the mentor team for several of Tara Brach’s online mindfulness courses; and she mentors for the Sounds True Power of Awareness meditation training course also taught by Tara Brach & Jack Kornfield. With the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, Susan served as a mentor and facilitated IMCW’s first online meditation group.
She is a clinical psychologist, offering both mindfulness-based psychotherapy and mindfulness/meditation mentoring.
Susan loves the Brahma Viharas and holds deep interest in the sacred feminine and devotional practice. Her passions are her family, Dhamma study, hiking, mountains, and music; and her commitments are open-heartedness, gratitude, environmental and social justice, and embodied spirituality. She finds joy in sharing these transformative teachings and hopes to transmit her love of the Dhamma to others on this path.
