Seeing Past the Impulse

Tuere Sala, Guiding Teacher for Seattle Insight Meditation Society (SIMS), is a retired prosecuting attorney who has practiced Vipassana meditation for over 25 years. She has been an active member and volunteer at SIMS since 2001. In 2009, she was appointed to be a Local Dharma Leader and has often supported SIMS in unconventional ways such as answering the many letters SIMS receives from practitioners in prison; offering beginning classes at Angeline Women’s shelter and Jubilee House, a women’s transitional house; and facilitating workshops using nonviolent communication (NVC) to support a mindfulness practice. She is now the co-lead teacher of SIMS, and is interested in using the dharma to work with depression.
Tuere believes that urban meditation is the foundation for today’s practitioner’s path to liberation. She is inspired by bringing the Dharma to nontraditional places and is a strong advocate for practitioners living with high stress, past trauma and difficulties sitting still. Her teachings reflect an approach to Dharma that is both easy to follow and understand — making it accessible to everyone. https://www.buddhistrecovery.org/donate
