Monica Hanson, iREST Supervisor and Trainer, Stanford-trained Teacher

I am passionate about the application of mind body meditation. I'm a Certified iREST Teacher, Supervisor and Trainer and a previous Board Member of IRI. I teach at Stanford University's School of Medicine and am a consultant with Stanford's Center for Compassion and Altruism - Research and Education. At Duke University, Integrative Medicine I was certified in the Therapeutic Application of Yoga ; and I'm trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.

The work of colleagues and mentors that I closely follow are: IRI Board Members and Trainers, Jacquelyn Long, LCSW, a neuropsychologist from Princeton, and Kelly McGonigal, PhD, author, psychologist and mind body expert from Stanford University.

I'm married and we enjoy a teenaged son. I like Lake Shasta, bees, biking up hills, fast cars, friends, family, colleagues, art, science, writing and the awe and mystery of nature.
