About Robin Craig
Organic Intelligence® and Meditation
I am Associate Faculty with Organic Intelligence, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and am currently in Upasaka Culadasa's Meditation Teacher Training Program. I have degrees in Philosophy, Counseling Psychology, and Biomedical Engineering as well as having studied Neuroscience at the Vollum Institute for Advanced Biomedical Research in Portland, OR. As the worlds of psychology and meditation begins to integrate with the world of neurophysiology, it can be helpful to have an understanding of the emerging theories that link these fields.
The practice of meditation has changed how I view my self and others and allowed the changes I have experienced through OI to become trait changes, rather than passing state changes. My main meditation teacher, Upasaka Culadasa emphasizes the path to awakening that includes cultivating a joyful mind. I have also studied with Kittisaro, Leigh Brasington, Rev. angel Kyodo Williams, Thanissara, and Guy Armstrong. These teachers have opened the doors for the fullness of kindness and compassion in meditation, with clients, and in my moment-to-moment living. I have found this to be the foundation from which true healing and awakening can arise.
