Em loves nothing more than creating safe, fun, and healthy spaces for teens and adults to flourish. She’s taught mindfulness at afterschool programs, summer camps, and on young adult and teen retreats. She became interested in mindfulness and meditation in 2011 because she was having the best day of her life (just kidding). She is honored to have the chance to share the tools that have brought her so much joy, contentment, and peace in her life.
Em is a regular member of IMCW's LGBTIQ sangha and serves in IMCW's Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity group. She focuses on Non-Violent Communication and restorative justice along with teaching the dharma as practices for personal AND collective liberation. Her website is www.pastpresenceforward.com.
