Tuere Sala is a Guiding Teacher for Seattle Insight Meditation Society (SIMS). She is a retired prosecuting attorney who has practiced Vipassana meditation for over 25 years. Tuere is inspired by bringing the Dharma to nontraditional places and has often supported SIMS in unconventional ways such as answering letters 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. Tuere believes that urban meditation is the foundation for today’s practitioner’s path to liberation 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.
