Claire Villarreal, PhD
Meditation for transformation
Claire Villarreal has been wondering about the nature of reality most of her life and practicing various forms of Buddhism since 1997. She’s meditated her way around India, Nepal, and Thailand, with pilgrimages to Tibet. She completed a PhD on Tibetan Buddhism and contemplative ways of knowing in 2015 at Rice University, worked for Dawn Mountain Center for Tibetan Buddhism until early 2019, and is now a digital nomad and meditation instructor. Things that blow her mind include science, great storytelling, and Spinning.
