Yenkuei Chuang, Ph.D., is a mindfulness-based licensed psychologist with over twenty years of experience in meditation, yoga, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Committed to the practices of awareness, wisdom, and love, she offers a breadth of services to individuals and groups. She helps people transform their suffering across all life transitions and specifically with issues at work, relationships, and sexuality. She is keenly aware of culture, gender, race, class, and other social differences that condition our perceptions and identities. When not working, she loves being a mother to her four children, writing, cooking, and dancing.
Dr. Chuang received her M.Ed. in Human Development from Harvard University and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Stanford University. Also a Fulbright Fellow, she wrote her dissertation on Bicultural Competence. Previously she worked as a clinical psychologist at Harvard University Health Services, a diversity consultant at Harvard Pilgrim Foundation, and mindfulness instructor at Downunder School of Yoga. She is grateful to Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and Insight Meditation teachers for their guidance and support.
*Dana, which is the ancient Pali word for “generosity”, is a fundamental aspect of the Buddha’s teachings. Our teachers have historically received 60% of the dana given for dharma talks, and while this is still true, since the pandemic, we do make sure teachers receive a minimum guaranteed amount. Insight Western Mass operates entirely on the sangha's acts of generosity. If you have the means, please consider a donation tonight. Those who donate more are helping to make the center accessible to all. Everyone is welcome to all of our offerings regardless of ability to donate.
You can give online or send checks to Insight Western Mass, 116 Pleasant Street, Suite 242, Easthampton, MA 01027. FYI: we check for mail once per week.
