Marcy Reynolds joined Insight Santa Cruz in 1997 and has been a member of the teachers’ council since 2006. She began her meditation training at Tassajara Zen Center in 1984 with Katherine Thanas and in 1995 began studying with Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, who continues as her root teacher, even though her primary practice focuses on Vipassana and Metta. In recent years, her practice and teaching have been strongly influenced by the work of Shinzen Young. In addition to sitting meditation, Marcy also has a strong Qigong practice and has studied with a number of Chinese and American Qigong Masters, notably Bingkun Hu, who continues to act as her guiding teacher in Qigong. Marcy has taught Qigong since 1997. Her classes emphasize mindfulness of the body through both movement and stillness. In addition to teaching at Insight Santa Cruz, Marcy teaches qigong movement and mindfulness meditation throughout the Santa Cruz and South SF Bay Areas. She also teaches for the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View.
