About Vinny Ferraro
Vinny Ferraro has been a practitioner of insight meditation (vipassanā) since the mid 90s. He is a co-founder of the Dharma Punx and he’s been the Guiding Teacher of a Sangha in San Francisco for 15 years. He is also a nationally recognized leader in designing and implementing interventions for at-risk adolescents and is a Senior Trainer for Mindful Schools. In 1987, he was introduced to Service work and began leading groups for incarcerated populations. In 2001, he began teaching for Challenge Day, a nationally recognized, social & emotional learning program, eventually becoming their Director of Training and leading workshops for over 110,000 youth on four continents.
Vinny is also a board member and former Training Director of the Mind Body Awareness Project and is the principal author of MBA’s mindfulness-based curriculum for incarcerated youth. His focus continues to be delivering direct services to folks that have limited access.
He has been trained and empowered by Spirit Rock/IMS and he doesn’t like talking about himself in the 3rd person.
We ask the community to help visiting teachers cover the costs associated with taking the time to meet with our Sangha. No one will ever be turned away for lack of funds. Please consider the value of having visiting teachers and how that helps the community both in the present and in the future. If you are able to offer more than the minimum, it helps to cover those who are unable to make an offering. You may select one of the provided donation amounts or set your own. You may donate via PayPal here
