Devon Hase began intensive meditation training in 2000. After spending a decade teaching English and social studies in high school and college classrooms, she entered a two-year period of retreat. She has studied at monasteries in Nepal and India, and practices in the Insight and Vajrayana traditions with Bhikkhu Anālayo and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Devon loves long retreat and is passionate about creative ways to bring depth practice into the daily spin of things. She now lives in urban retreat in her hometown of Ashland, Oregon, splitting each week between teaching and practice.
