Lori Wong has been practicing vipassana meditation since 2003. Her first retreat (a Goenka retreat) was in 2003 at the California Vipassana Center in North Fork, CA. She became acquainted with Gil Fronsdal when she attended a Spirit Rock retreat in the fall of 2003 and has been a student of Gil's ever since. She currently lives in the Central Valley, leads two insight meditation groups in Modesto, and occasionally teaches mindfulness to children at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship there. Grateful for the teachings and the offerings at IMC, she feels that volunteering in many ways at IMC has provided an opportunity to bring practice into another facet of her life.
