About Deanna Burkett

Deanna Burkett was introduced to meditation in 2007 during a one-month residential yoga teacher training at Kripalu. This month of intensive practice established bodily awareness as a way of meeting suffering, and this changed her life. Deanna first practiced Insight Dialogue in 2015 during an 8-week online course. Often living in rural areas, she has found online dharma communities to be an important support, and she hopes to contribute to their further growth and development. Deanna is a psychotherapist, Certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher, and Kripalu Yoga teacher. She is in the current Insight Dialogue Teacher Development Cohort and is also training as a Somatic Experiencing (SE) practitioner. She lives in northwestern Oklahoma.
