- A conversation with Ellen Tynan. Ellen Tynan creates opportunities for people to experience their true nature through exploration and contemplation in the wild (www.wildpresence.org). Ellen began exploring Zen and Tibetan Buddhism at a young age. For the past 10 years she has practiced Vipassana, or Insight Meditation and teaches with the Insight Meditation Community of Washington DC.
For nearly 20 years, Ellen worked with the World Bank to guide developing countries in protecting the environment and preserving their natural resources. A published photographer, her current project documents traditional boats and boat-builders from across the globe. Ellen also practices contemplative Miksang photography (a Dharma Art teaching of Chogyam Trungpa) which focuses on revealing a pure perception of the world around us. Ellen holds an M.A. from Yale University, an A.B. from Vassar College, and a certificate in Marine Conservation from Duke University.
She trained in tracking, traditional skills and awareness at the Roots School in northern Vermont, is a certified Wilderness First Responder and a licensed river guide in the state of Utah.
