Once upon a time I was a stressed out lawyer, insomniac, and chronic worrier. My daily life included anxiety attacks, chronic pain, irritability, and despair. Ultimately I was diagnosed with cancer. Then, I discovered something amazing! Through mind-body practices like yoga and meditation I could quiet my worrying, chattering mind. I learned embodiment and compassion practices for working skillfully with unconscious emotions driving all my stress. This awakened an enthusiasm for mindfulness that animates my life today and has inspired me to do many things. I left the practice of law, went back to school, and earned a Master's degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University, a Buddhist-inspired center for contemplative education founded by renowned Tibetan meditation master, Chogyam Trungpa. There my graduate work explored mindfulness as the context for growth-fostering relationships, healing community, and integral transformative practice. Since 2010 I have been a teacher and practitioner of mindfulness. I earned certification from U. C. San Diego's School of Medicine as a teacher of the internationally acclaimed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. I also deliver online web-based programs, including Mindfulness for Stress Relief.
