“We are all just walking each other home”
My path to mindfulness began in Duluth at the University of Minnesota. Finding healthier ways to peace, while completing a BA in Communication and Art. Movement and nature were key tools & teachers. I feel so lucky to have discovered how yoga and meditation connect, challenge and help us grow.
I am a qualified MBSR teacher, Level 2. Grateful for teachers over the recent years, Eve Ekman and Matthew Brensilver. I have Jack Kornfield to thank for getting over my resistance to sitting (somewhat still). I appreciate the lessons learned from Mushim at East Bay Meditation Center. I am thankful for continued learning from the teachings and teachers of MBSR & Jon Kabat-Zinn.
I have received certification at Piedmont advanced studies program & Yoga for Healthy Aging, Trauma Informed Yoga, Yoga Therapeutics & youth yoga dharma continues. Thankful for influence from Baxter Bell, Bessel van der Kolk Debbie Gilman, Rajashree Choudhury & Patricia Nolan.
