We Teach What the Buddha Taught
“Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, / A cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. / If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, / This is the best season of your life.” Wu-men
Elaine is committed to deepening her own understanding of issues of diversity and the way racial conditioning in the United States affects all of us — both as individuals and in relationship to the institutions we are a part of, including New York Insight. She’s been involved in New York Insight’s diversity efforts for many years, serving on the diversity committee, and working with others to create spaces – for diverse groups of practitioners as well as for white practitioners meeting separately – to explore these issues within a Dharma frame.
In addition to her teaching, Elaine works as an acupuncturist in private practice, integrating mindfulness into her encounters with clients.
