Self-compassion + meditation

I am a Mindfulness and Compassion Facilitator with Compassion LA and also teach a weekly class as well as workshops at THE DEN MEDITATION.

I am trained to teach the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program developed by Drs. Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer and co-created the Self-Compassion for Parents program for Compassion LA. I have also served as a meditation teacher in a variety of settings throughout Los Angeles, and London, UK. 

I have been practicing meditation since 1997, including studying with Adyashanti and his wife Mukti since 2006, who invite students to inquire into the nature of the self and points to the natural state of compassionate awareness that is always and already present.  I have also studied with Loch Kelly of the Open Hearted Awareness Institute and Dick Schwartz, the creator of the Internal Family Systems method, who offer practices to access our essential Self in order to welcome and heal our wounded parts.  It is my goal to offer doorways which can bridge the realms of psychology with spiritual practice so that we may find more freedom as we integrate these aspects of mind, body, heart & spirit.
