Keri Pederson is primarily a student of the dharma, but teaches regularly when invited. She began meditating in 1998, motivated by a deepening yoga practice as well as a strong desire to understand suffering. She began formal retreat practice in the tradition of S. N. Goenka, and has since sat retreats with a variety of lay and monastic teachers is the U.S., Thailand, and India. Rodney Smith invited her to teach in 2007 and she was authorized to teach by Spirit Rock/IMS/IRC after a four year retreat-teacher training.
