Simin Abravesh (1960, Iran) has been practicing vipassana and metta meditation since 2004 under the guidance of Jotika Hermsen, a Dhamma teacher in the Netherlands. In 2016 she was recognized as a vipassana teacher by her teachers in Sangha Metta (Netherlands). She attended her first Insight Dialogue retreat in 2012. She experiences Insight Dialogue as a valuable addition to (individual) vipassana meditation.
For Simin, the Dhamma is her source of insight, especially the teaching of dependent origination. She is well versed in classical Buddhist psychology (Abhidhamma) and also draws a lot of inspiration from Persian wisdom. She is practical, inviting, and flexible. Simin, who currently lives in the Netherlands, brings her own voice from her multi-cultural background, sincere and authentic.
