About Dr. Thynn Thynn . . .
For Western practitioners of Buddhist insight, the
application of mindfulness in daily life, rather than abstract theory, is what connects
them most to the teachings. Dr Thynn Thynn speaks most eloquently on how the path of
mindfulness may be available to householders with full responsibilities of jobs and
family. Her teachings is a unique presentation of traditional Theravada teachings for lay
people, and shows a strong flavour of Zen and Krishnamurti.
