Tara Mulay teaches and mentors Insight Meditation practitioners to refine their mindfulness practice, both on the meditation cushion and in daily life. Tara was trained and authorized to teach by the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts and is a Guiding Teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California.
Tara began her intensive mindfulness practice while working as a criminal defense attorney for 20 years. Her teachings and practice stem from the lineage of Mahasi Sayadaw, for which she is particularly grateful, and draw influence from other Theravadan and Early Buddhist lineages.
Tara felt initially drawn to dharma practice upon encountering the Buddha’s teachings rejecting social caste as a measure of worth and of capacity for awakening. She believes classical Buddhist practices, designed to cultivate compassion, non-greed, non-hatred, and non-delusion, are uniquely potent vehicles for empowering people in marginalized communities.
