Susan Alotrico

Susan remembers first learning about the concept of “Ahimsa,” - causing no harm, while studying Eastern religions in high school.  She took Rodney Smith’s introduction to meditation class in 2008, and just kept coming back. She jumped into volunteering for SIMS, then left to serve in the Peace Corps (2012-2015), living in the Buddhist-infused culture of Thailand. Her favorite Thai word is Nam Jai, or water heart, translated as generosity. “Generosity is something I thought I understood, until I saw its true boundless nature.”  After exploring Nepal and Bhutan, she returned to SIMS, volunteering and then serving on the SIMS Board as volunteer coordinator. Susan works in schools and in elder-care.  She has sat non-residential and residential retreats in the Northwest and abroad, and feels the spiritual urgency of the Dharma to open the capacity of the heart to be free from suffering in this lifetime.
