Kim Allen began meditating in 2003, seeking both a path out of suffering and the deeper truths of life. She has practiced in the US and Sri Lanka, and was trained by Gil Fronsdal at the Insight Meditation Center. She teaches Dharma programs, sutta study, and retreats in-person and online. Kim lives as a lay contemplative and draws from a background in long retreat practice, textual study, and scientific training to bring classical Dharma to a modern context.
