Justine Dawson is a teacher and guide of dharma and intimacy. A 23-year practitioner of Insight meditation, she completed her five-year teacher training under Jack Kornfield in 2012. After several long retreats of two to three months, she contemplated ordaining in Asia, but instead chose to devote her practice to the complex realms of sexuality and relationship. For the past eight years, she has taught an integrated approach to inquiry and mindfulness inclusive of the erotic, desire, and connection. 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. She has taught throughout the US and Europe and is currently keeping it real in Los Angeles, California, where she teaches at InsightLA, and maintains a private practice working with individuals and couples.
