Gulwinder “Gullu” Singh is a lead teacher in the Warrior One Mindfulness in Law Teacher Training program. Gullu also teaches Dharma and secular mindfulness, is a corporate real estate attorney, and is a dedicated Dharma practitioner with particular interest in integrating the insights and cultivation from retreat practice into daily life and work. While he learned to meditate as a child, he found his own practice in 1993 in Transcendental Meditation, which he used to navigate the intense work stress of being an attorney. In 2006, at his first retreat at Spirit Rock, Gullu found his spiritual home in Vipassana and Theravada Buddhism. Since then, he has cumulatively done over 200 days of silent meditation retreat including the Spirit Rock one and two month sits.
Gullu completed InsightLA’s one-year Mindfulness Facilitator Training Group, Spirit Rock’s 2-year Dedicated Practitioner Program and the training to teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. He regularly teaches both secular and Buddhist classes and groups at InsightLA, has taught mindfulness at the University of Southern California, has been a guest lecturer on mindfulness at UCLA Law School and has taught mindfulness in law firms and corporate settings. He was recently invited into the 4-year Spirit Rock Teacher Training Program which focuses on teaching in the silent retreat setting.
Gullu graduated from Duke University in 1990 with a B.A in economics and a minor equivalent in psychology and got his J.D. from the University of Southern California Law Center in 1993 where he was on Law Review from 1991 to 1993. He then worked Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker LLP and O’Melveny & Myers LLP before founding Landmark Law Group, Inc. in 1998. He was recognized as a California Super Lawyer in 2009.
Gullu is deeply inspired to share meditation in the legal and corporate community as an antidote to stress, a way to cope more effectively with the challenges of work and live and to inject more sanity, compassion and wisdom into this world. He also aspires to lead residential and commuter retreats to serve his local community.
