About the Hosts
Bill Morgan, PsyD, is a clinical psychologist in private practice in Cambridge, MA. He has participated in many intensive retreats in meditation practice over the past 40 years and completed a four-year meditation retreat at the Forest Refuge in Barre, MA in 2013. Together with Susan Morgan, he has been leading mindfulness retreats for 15 years.
Susan Morgan, CNS, is a psychotherapist in Cambridge, MA. She is a board and faculty member of the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy and contributing author to Mindfulness and Psychotherapy. Susan has a longstanding meditation practice and completed a four-year meditation retreat at the Forest Refuge in 2013. She has been leading retreats, primarily for caregivers, for the last 15 years. Lovingkindness and mindfulness of the body are integral to her teaching.
Catherine Glenn has been practicing Vipassana meditation since 2006. Her teaching is rooted in the suttas and invites a turning toward our edges with authenticity and kindness. Buddhist Psychology and Internal Family Systems (IFS) ground her approach as a meditator and psychotherapist; both foster embodiment and cultivate a welcoming and curious relationship with whatever is present within and around us. A chronic doer with a penchant for restlessness, doubt, and leaning into the future, she is forever encouraging herself to settle back into the flow of moment-to-moment experience.
Jaye has been a committed daily meditation practitioner since 2009. Always interested in the interplay between creativity, compassion and spontaneity, she was drawn to the “innate love and compassion” practices as taught in different Tibetan Traditions. She met and studied with Bill and Susan Morgan in 2015 and with them, deepened her appreciation of embodiment, heart, and daily dharma. Jaye has a clinical psychotherapy practice in the Hudson Valley region of New York. She is co-creator of Integraltherapy. This program integrates mindful awareness, compassion training and experiential investigation with Buddhist psychology.
For Lori Rugle, the Buddhist invitation of ehipassiko, “come and see for yourself,” resonated and kept her coming back for the past 30 years. Her practice has focused on Vipassana, Metta and compassion-based practices. She has incorporated these practices into her work as a clinical psychologist as well as her life. She feels profound gratitude and humility for learning from Bill and Susan Morgan over the past 7 years.
Lee Steppacher has been practicing meditation for over 25 years, primarily in the Vipassana tradition, most recently studying with Bill and Susan Morgan. She is particularly drawn to bringing dharma into daily life in an embodied and heartfelt way. After a career as an environmental professional, she integrated her love of nature with her meditation practice through training in Awake in the Wild with Mark Coleman. She offers meditative walks and retreats in nature near her home in Vermont. She is also a palliative massage therapist working in a hospice setting.
