Kristie Grasis has been practicing Vipassana from the Theravada Buddhist tradition for over a decade. Her most considerable influence has been Gil Fronsdal from Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, California.
Throughout her dedicated practice, Kristie has studied Meditation extensively with Ruby Grad, the Eightfold Path with Bruni Davila, the Paramis with Chris Clifford, and Metta with John Martin. She is currently enrolled at the SATI Center, training to be a Buddhist Chaplain, and is working toward her ordination with IMC. Kristie’s practice has taught her loving-kindness for herself and others and has helped her to overcome trauma and thrive with peace and equanimity in her life. She has reached a place in her practice where it is time to focus on Dana and freely teach others the benefits of the Path to Liberation.

*Dana is a Pali word that is generally translated “generosity.” We are taught to practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for services rendered – it is given from the heart. Dana is the first theme in the Buddha’s system of gradual training and the first of the three grounds for meritorious action.
