Sevenoaks Retreat Center, Madison, VA
As a former police officer, I developed a mindfulness practice 7 years into my 20-year career. Although it was a challenge to bring two seemingly disparate worlds together, I found that it was more than possible to do the job with compassion and to reframe how I viewed my job. My teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay), who years later ordained me as a dharma teacher, inspired the confidence in me that it was possible.
