    My journey of mindfulness began when I became a student and practitioner of Nonviolent Communication in 2007. I slowly incorporated yoga, then mindfulness meditation, and then self compassion practices. Mindfulness has been the foundational practice for me in cultivating the awareness that leads to more self-connection, and to a deeper knowing of what matters in any given situation. During times of struggle, self compassion has taught me how to replace the self critical voice with a much gentler and kinder voice.

    I am a certified Mindful Schools Instructor and working on being a MFY Certified Teacher.
