Who we are

Irini Rockwell

Five Wisdoms Institute Founder, Director and Principle Trainer

Supreme Rainbow Dancer

For decades I have been deeply interested in the essence of who we are and how we can bring out our best to serve the world. The Five Wisdoms have been the vehicle to bring together my training in Buddhism, meditation, psychotherapy, leadership, mind/body disciplines, movement, and the arts.

My primary interest, as presented in the year long Five Wisdoms Training, is to teach people to actively use the Five Wisdoms in their life and work. My books are The Five Wisdom Energies, a Buddhist Way of Understanding Personalities, Emotions and Relationships and Natural Brilliance. I have taught internationally for almost 40 years at Buddhist centers and spiritual and personal growth venues. Formerly a professional dancer, I then trained in a Contemplative Psychotherapy MA, Authentic Leadership, and Tantric Buddhism.
