Hi, I’m Heidi – So nice to meet you!
I am on a mission to demystify mindfulness and to offer simple techniques in an accessible manner. I share research-backed, practical mindfulness tools and techniques that you can apply in your daily life.
Although there are dozens of research-backed reasons to practice mindfulness – I focus specifically on using mindfulness practices for self-care in order to develop lasting resilience and grit.
I focus on the offering these practices to folks that are busy doing meaningful work – work that requires a certain kind of mindset and skill-set to thrive – I offer these practices to change-makers, creatives, entrepreneurs and intrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes.
I offer 1×1 mindfulness coaching and guest mindfulness meditation teaching at workshops, conferences and in-residence at start-ups and non-profits.
I started this mindfulness resource as an expression of the gratitude I have for the teachings and practices of mindfulness and present moment awareness and how this practice has had such a positive impact on my life.
I believe that we have everything we need right inside of ourselves – to thrive, to be resilient, to foster compassion, to create the world we want to wake up to each day.
Each of us can do extraordinary things – and I believe Mindfulness is a key path to rekindle the creativity that is inside each and every one of us. Right now, more than anything, the world needs creative solutions to our most challenging problems.
Our lives are a series of moments – let’s make each moment count.
Wake up to a Life in Full Bloom.
Thank you for being here.

I live in the wonderful city of San Francisco with my husband and 10 month old son. I am a health and wellbeing writer and educator, nature-loving outdoor enthusiast, and mindfulness instructor.
I have practiced mindfulness meditation and yoga for over 15 years. I first started meditating and practicing yoga at age 21 when I lived in Nepal and India for 6 months. During that time I participated in my first 12 day Vipassana Meditation course and I also had the privilege of living with and teaching English to a group of Tibetan Buddhist Nuns in Nepal where I also learned traditional Tibetan Walking Meditation.
I have recently completed the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) professional teachers training practicum from the UMass MBSR Institute founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
I am also currently completing a two-year advanced mindfulness meditation teachers certificate, accredited by the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center, where I am fortunate to be studying directly under mindfulness leaders Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield. I use these teachers trainings to deepen my own practice and to share these practices with all of you.
In the past I’ve worked in both the wellness and digital technology space. For over 3 years I led marketing and sponsorships for Yoga Journal Magazine, a first mover in the well-being and wellness space. After that I received an MBA and have worked for the past few years on new digital product innovation and marketing for technology and media companies such as the sell-your-fashion program eBay Marketplaces.
