Contemplative Arts is:
Here at Contemplative Arts at the White Lotus Center in Bryn Mawr PA, I teach meditation and mindfulness-based stress management to individuals and groups, and support people living with cancer or other serious illnesses to integrate a variety of mind body methods into their healing journey. Through my personal meditation practice and through the experiences of those I have mentored, I am confident that meditation, mindfulness, and mind body practices can lessen the stress and suffering of emotional reactivity, increase happiness, and support healing transformations in one's personal life and in relation to others.
The Contemplative Arts Meditation Studio at the White Lotus Center is the fruition of a long-held dream. In the early '70's I began practicing Buddhist methods of mind training while an honors psychology undergraduate at the University of Connecticut. As I became increasingly aware of the power and efficacy of meditation to support deep and honest reflection, well-being, creativity, and the development of kindness and compassion towards others, I earned a Masters in Contemplative Psychology at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, where I was able to deepen my commitment to the practice of meditation while exploring its benefits for others.
