David Lorey began meditating as a teenager in the 1970s, in college began intensive training in transcendental meditation and then came to practice in the container of the Buddhadharma in the early 2000s. Integrating tranquility and insight practices forms the core of his current path; in addition, he explores the early teachings embedded in the textual tradition of the Pali canon for insights into practicing and living in accord with the Dharma. He occasionally co-teaches retreats in Spanish at the Insight Retreat Center in California. A student of Gil Fronsdal’s, David currently serves as president of the board of IMC. He holds a Ph.D. in history.
