Hi! Im really excited about joining a group of mindful educators. I have had a personal mindful practice for many years, this is my happy place.
Five years ago today, our daughter began to suffer from anxiety; we were advised to find a teen mindfulness group for her to attend. Crazy, we could not find one. So I decided to enroll into the Mindful School Fundamentals program, which led me to take the Educator Essential and Difficult Emotions program. All these programs helped me support our daughter and our family through some challenging time. Recently, I finished the prerequisites for Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach- Mindfulness Mediation Teacher Certification and I plan to apply for the Spring 2020 program. I hope I get accepted this program.
Now that our daughter is attending high school and I am no longer home schooling I am free to pursue a new path. I hope to find a place to share my mindfulness practice in the Berkeley. The East Bay would be ideal since Im driving our daughter to Berkeley everyday from San Rafael. We will see what come of this goal.
