Lucinda Green, Ph.D. was born to meditate. She is the founder and director of Rocky Mountain Insight, a Buddhist Vipassana meditation Center. Dr. Green first began meditating in 1967, and while living in India in the early 1970’s, pursued studies of philosophy, yoga and meditation as part of her undergraduate collegiate education.
She began Vipassana meditation in 1976 and in the late 1970’s met her root teacher Ruth Denison. This meeting proved to be an auspicious event which led Lucinda into a life long study and practice of the Dharma, teachings of the Buddha, These teachings were avidly pursued through studies at Nyingma Institute in Berkeley, CA. and with numerous Buddhist teachers including Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, Pema Chodron, Thich Nhat Hanh, Christopher Titmus, Rina Sircar, and U Silananda..
Upon receiving her Ph.D. in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology in the mid-eighties, Dr. Green rewarded herself by traveling once again to Asia where she donned monastic robes and lived as a Buddhist nun in Sri Lanka under the tutelage of Venerable Ayya Khema, whom she considers her second teacher.
Upon return, Dr. Green received Dharma transmission from her mentor Ruth Denison, becoming a lineage holder in the Burmese tradition of Buddhism. It is her profound joy to share the Dharma.
Dr. Green has produced numerous recordings of guided meditations for living a balanced life, breathing techniques for stress reduction, and Dharma talks for spiritual growth.
