I am really touched by the deep wounding of Imee's past, and the healing grace of the dharma. Even more, by the shining spirit within her that endured so much, and continues to become more radiant.  I trust that wherever she is, she will bring the light of dharma.

Psychologist, Meditation Teacher, Co-founder of Philippine Insight Meditation Community

Imee’s fierce heart and commitment to the practice of mindfulness as a practitioner and a teacher is unwavering. 


Her ability to take the practice of mindfulness off the cushion and into life is transformative action of right livelihood.  It’s always an honor to have such a dedicated spirit on the path to relieving suffering for others, as well as, teaching the value of self-care as a radical and necessary practice of overcoming the challenges of being human at this juncture in history.
