Gina Michaels is an artist who has been studying energy-related modalities since 1985. After practicing and teaching Zero Balancing and Process Acupressure for 15 years, Gina decided she needed a silent retreat, and discovered Tibetan Buddhist practice.
She met Lama Willa and Brendan Kennedy on her first retreat in 2006, and they remain her core teachers. Gina lives in Philadelphia, where she is coordinator and meditation teacher for an active Philadelphia sangha. Gina is an NDF Meditation Teacher, and is a coordinator of the Vajrayana program. Her growing edge is to explore and enhance the synergy between her meditation and visual art practices.
