KPFA’s Women’s Magazine looks at two women spiritual teachers, Arrina Weisman and Cheryl Dawson. Arinna Weisman has studied insight meditation with Ruth Denison and Thich Nhat Hanh and in many other traditions. Locally, she leads LGBT meditation retreats at Spirit Rock and she is the co-author of the book, "A Beginner’s Guide to Insight Meditation." Cheryl Dawson is a healer who works on bringing healing to women in prison. She founded the San Francisco Sheriff Department’s program SISTERS (Sisters in Sober Treatment Empowered in Recovery), one of the first in-custody therapeutic communities which provide educational and substance abuse counseling for women.
