Lien-Chi (who prefers to be called simply “LC”) was born into a Mahayana Buddhist family. She began to practice mindfulness in 1986 with Thay Thich Nhat Hanh.

In 1994, Lienchi met Venerable Khippapanno. His kindness and wisdom swayed her to convert to the Theravada tradition. Since then she has been going on retreats regularly in Burma, Thailand, California, and Massachusetts (IMS). Lienchi has ordained 3 times and attended many retreats, ranging from 10 days to 1 year with Venerable Khippapanno, Luang Por Sumedho, Sayadaw U Pandita, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, and other IMS Teachers.

In 2015, Lienchi left her career as an architect in order to live and practice in Burma with her primary teacher Sayadaw U Tejaniya for 2 years. In 2017, Sayadaw U Tejaniya encouraged her to teach.

Currently, LC is teaching with InsightLA in Long Beach area where she wishes to share her understanding with others to spread generosity and wisdom.
