Karen has been practicing Mindfulness Meditation for several years. Most recently, she engaged in a 2-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Program led by psychologists Jack Kornfield, PhD and Tara Brach, PhD. As a result of this training, she will receive her teacher certification in the tradition of Insight Meditation in February 2021.
