JoAnna Harper

Guiding Teacher Los Angeles

Has been exploring and practicing multiple traditions since 1999. In 2005, her focus landed on Buddhism and Vipassana meditation, which is the premise for most of her current teaching. She teaches; adult and teen weeklong silent retreats, day longs and weekly classes, and works with at risk youth and non at risk youth in institutional and school settings. Helping communities and individuals that don’t typically have access to the traditional dharma settings and building multicultural community is top on her list of priorities. She is an empowered teacher in the Spirit Rock, IMS lineage. She is the grateful mother of CJ and Harris – her main inspirations.
