Kim Allen

Kim Allen began meditation training in 2003, seeking both a path out of a suffering and a deeper experience of life, and met her primary teacher Gil Fronsdal shortly thereafter. She has sat for cumulative years of silent retreat in the West and Sri Lanka, and has also studied with a few teachers from the later Buddhist traditions. She now teaches widely both in-person and online, with a focus on retreats, sutta contemplation, and programs for integrating deep Dharma into everyday life.

Her teaching emphasizes the willingness to look truthfully at experience, feel it fully, and soften in light of what is seen. She enjoys encouraging people to bring the Dharma more fully to life.

Kim sits on the board of the Sati Center and is the author of two books. Her education includes a PhD in physics and a master’s degree in environmental sustainability.
