Practicing mindfulness allows us to let go and live freely
Welcome. I teach mindfulness meditation in Washington, DC, across the U.S. and in Costa Rica—offering its benefits to women and men of all ages.
- the art of bringing a direct, non-judging awareness to your experience, moment by moment
- a skillful means to work with life’s challenges
- a path to cultivating peace, joy and well-being
Numerous scientific studies show meditation and other mindfulness practices generate better health, increased productivity and more happiness. My hundreds of students—young and mid-life professionals, social activists, executives, veterans, retirees and others—discover the benefits for themselves, from greater well-being and inner peace to reduced stress and chronic pain.
