Being inspired by the Buddha’s teachings on peace and freedom and supported by her own discoveries along the path of practice, Diana Clark teaches with an emphasis on both the beautiful and the practical. She has trained in the Theravada tradition, including cumulatively many years of silent meditation retreats. In addition, she studies and teaches about the early Buddhist teachings found in the Pali Canon and is the president of the Sati Center for Buddhist Studies and on the Executive Committee of the Insight Retreat Center in California. Diana’s education includes a Ph.D. in biochemistry and a MA in Buddhist Studies. Just as studying biochemistry helped her understand the workings of the human body, practicing Buddhism has helped her understand the workings of the human mind.
