Emily began her meditation practice in 2001 while living in Kanagawa, Japan, inspired by the serenity and joy embodied by the mons at the local temples she visited in 2011, she deepened her study of Vipassana (Insight Meditation) through retreat at Wat Mahathat, ne of the oldest Buddhist temples in Bangkok. She is committed to life-long practice and deepening that practice through sharing the path with others. She will complete Jack Kornfield's and Tara Brach's two year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program at the end of 2020.
Taking meditation "off the cushion" and integrating the principles of mindfulness into daily life are the central themes of Emily's practice and teaching. The skills cultivated in mindfulness meditation practice support her role as not only a meditation teacher, but also her roles as a mother to three young boys, a wife to a patient husband, and a full time employee in the banking industry.
Emily is active with the Bhavana Community of Coastal Caroline where she serves as a founding Board Member. Emily offers a local Mindful Kids program using meditation, using, and movement to teach fundamentals of mindfulness to children and families.
