Alisa Dennis

Alisa Dennis, Ph.D., discovered meditation through her study of metaphysics and ancient mystical traditions during the 1980s. Since then, she’s trained in the Soto Zen tradition, MBSR, and most recently in the Theravada tradition. Alisa has gravitated toward Insight meditation because of its emphasis on liberatory heart-opening practices and its growing community of practitioners committed to embodied awakening and transformative justice. Alisa has also practiced shamanism and considers Nature one of her wisest teachers. She is a clinical psychologist in Los Angeles, where she supports people as they move through transitions, deepening, expansion or letting go in their lives. She specializes in somatic therapies, including traumatic release and integration work, all of which inform her teaching. Alisa is a deep metaphysician. She enjoys the creative arts and invites creativity into her practice and teaching of the Dharma. Alisa is a teacher at Insight L.A. in southern California. She teaches at Spirit Rock, and other retreat centers in North America. She offers trainings in mindfulness for community-based organizations and corporations around the world.
