Aura Glaser, Ph.D. is a dharma teacher and clinical psychologist who integrates spiritual, psychological, and embodiment work. She began practicing Buddhism in India in the late 1970s and for over thirty years has studied Tibetan Buddhism, Vipassana, and inner yoga with the great masters of Asia. She is a co-founder of Jewel Heart, an international Tibetan Buddhist organization, where she has been a senior teacher for over twenty years.
Her work spans Buddhism, depth and transpersonal psychology, inner-body somatics, nondual meditation, and the Divine Feminine. She teaches meditation as part of a process of inner exploration, where we learn to integrate heart, mind, and body to experience our natural state of wisdom and love.
Aura trained with Judith Blackstone and is certified to teach Realization Process® Subtle Self Work and Realization Process® Meditation. Aura is the author of “A Call to Compassion: Bringing Buddhist Practices of the Heart into the Soul of Psychology.” She is also the creator and original owner of Crazy Wisdom Bookstore in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
In recent years she felt inspired to step outside of the current of her tradition, and focus on an integrative teaching and practice path. To facilitate this emergent process, in January 2012 Aura founded Inner Sky to serve as a base for her teaching activities and for inviting local and visiting teachers.
