Justine Dawson

Justine Dawson is a teacher and guide of intimacy and awakening. A 23 year practitioner of Insight Meditation, she completed training as a teacher under Jack Kornfield in 2012.

In addition to her training and practice in traditional meditation and Buddhist psychology, Justine has devoted over 13 years to engaged practice and teaching in the realms of the erotic – sex, desire, self expression and connection. She has taught throughout the US and Europe, establishing and guiding communities of practice, as well supporting dharma retreats at venerable American spiritual institutions.

From the inside out Justine works with people to dismantle the shame, fear and judgment that prevents them from intimacy with all aspects of life. Both practical and provocative, she is a translator between worlds, bridging the rational and instinctual, theoretical and visceral, spiritual and mundane. Justine is currently keeping it real in Los Angeles, CA where she teaches at Insight LA, mentors emerging mindfulness teachers, and maintains a private practice working with individuals and couples throughout the world.
