Jen Jordan serves as IMCW Family Program Director, mentor for the online Power of Awareness course, and Mindfulness Instructor with Minds, Inc. Jen has trained in the Mindful Schools and .b curricula and is a graduate of the Meditation Teacher Training Institute (MTTI).
First introduced to Buddhist meditation thirty years ago as an adolescent, Jen has trained primarily in the Vipassana and Zen lineages and has spent extended time on retreat in both the USA and India. The teachings have been a place of refuge and support as she aspires for balance in the evolving cycles of life. She has found parenting her three school-aged children, including a child with a degenerative physical disability, her richest place of practice. Jen has experience in a broad range of contemplative modalities, including Reiki and Kundalini Yoga, and sees these as extensions of her meditative practice. She is particularly grateful for the guidance she has received from Thich Nhat Hanh.
In addition to her mindfulness work, Jen is a Family Nurse Practitioner currently working in hospice. Her personal practice is informed by a gratitude and respect for nature and our planet.
Jennifer has written a number of articles about family classes and meditation practice. Please find them on her Blog page, here.
