In addition to teaching meditation at FCCW, she also brings mindfulness and meditation practices into non-profit and corporate settings as well as to the United States Marine Corps through her consulting business. She leads Dances of Universal Peace nationally and internationally, and she hosts Real Life, a weekly radio show that highlights the potential for peace, growth and happiness in all of us.
