I completed the requirements for Trained Teacher certificate in August 2016. I have a co-facilitator nearby who offers the 8 week MSC course with me; we offer this program on a regular basis a few times per year.
I have been attending mindfulness based training programs for over 12 yrs; have attended contemplative programs for over 45 yrs. I have over 40 years of experience at facilitating group programs.
I have had opportunities of sitting with esteemed mindfulness teachers and attending course programs such as Jon Kabat-Zinn (MBSR), Zindel Siegel (MBCT), Thich Nhat Hahn, Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Pema Chodron, Tara Brach, Jan Chosen-Bays (Mindful Eating), Developing Resilience Through Applied Mindfulness (DRAM) - Hamilton Health Sciences, Sunnybrook Hospital and University of Toronto course on running mindfulness based group programs, Dr Ron Siegel (wisdom and compassion), DBT coping skills group training program and various on-line summit programs. I have recently completed the training for Qualified Teacher with MB-EAT (mindfulness-based eating awareness training) professional training program.


I believe it is important to live the skills in my daily life in order to be able to facilitate the MSC program. I face the same common humanity challenges in doing this as all human beings do. I continue to endeavour to develop my levels of compassion for self and others. I believe it is important to continue my professional development and personal training.
