iRest® meditation has been in my life since 2008. The practice enlivens me and has become my dear companion and guide.

I decided to get certified in the practice by Richard Miller’s Integrative Restoration organization because I want this beautiful practice to be available to anyone. It has benefits on the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels – on the whole person. I love helping people learn this simple but deeply effective practice.

I currently teach in several venues: In my studio in Wilmette, Illinois. Walter Payton College Preparatory High School, Chicago Evanston Veterans Community Center, through the great iRest Group at Veterans Restorative Project. I have also participated in research with high school students at Loyola Prep School in Wilmette, looking at the effect of iRest meditation on the self-esteem of girls aged 14-17.
