Martina Schneider has been a student of the Dharma since 1996. She has studied and practiced vipassana meditation in the United States, India and Burma, where she was ordained as a nun. Inspired by the teachings of the Buddha she has combined her practice with social engagement and has worked extensively with homeless and underrepresented populations, counseled people who are incarcerated, and volunteered with the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco. She completed four years of teacher training with Jack Kornfield. Martina is also interested in the combination of mindfulness practices and psychotherapy and uses this approach in her private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist in San Francisco.
