Tim Geil has practiced insight meditation since 1996 and was invited to teach in 2006 by Rodney Smith. A graduate of the IMS/Spirit Rock Teacher Training Program, he is the co-guiding teacher of Seattle Insight Meditation Society.
Tim emphasizes three expressions of the dharma: investigation, non-resistance, and compassion. Our daily lives prove a tailor-made spiritual path for each person when we are willing to investigate areas of constriction and resistance. This reveals our personal suffering created by the illusion of a separate self. A deep sense of non-resistance and compassion brings balance to investigation. Relaxing fully into this moment is the essence of non-resistance. Compassion brings sensitivity and kindness as we meet all aspects of ourselves. This allows the heart’s release into stillness. His relationship with his wife and daughter are a joyful and fundamental part of his dharma practice.
