Board of Directors

Mindful Living Revolution is cultivating a global network of people who are passionate about conscious, compassionate awareness and about choosing mindfulness in both the beautiful and the messy moments of life. We are supported by people around the world who are committed to the practice, and we are supported by a dedicated and inspiring group of people who form our board of directors. Each and every one of these people came into Eden’s life through shared interest in mindfulness and sustainability.

For the past 14 years, I have been a parent and a teacher of humanistic education at Play Mountain Place (Los Angeles, CA), one of the oldest humanistic alternative schools in the U.S. This school is inspired by the work of Carl Rogers and the philosophy of process over product. The main cause of suffering, in this school of thought, is due to people not being able to accept or allow themselves to fully experience all of who they are—which includes aspects that are not always socially acceptable.

I’m on the board of Mindful Living Revolution and began my practice of meditation and mindfulness with its founder, Deborah Eden Tull, over 8 years ago. MLR is a non-profit organization committed to teaching and making available compassionate awareness and engaged interconnection to people around the globe. 

I facilitate a weekly meditation/mindfulness group, inspired by the teachings of Zen, Cheri Huber, Deborah Eden Tull, and life.

I am certified teacher of Kundalini Yoga and completed my training with Gurmukh in Los Angeles. I also a graduate of Marie Forleo’s B-School.

Years of shared experience in a community of women, both as witness and witnessed at S Factor, a pole dancing studio in Los Angeles, have informed my liberation, my life and my writing.

I studied writing with Jack Grapes, creator of Method Writing, which focuses on truth and organic process as the path to authentic voice.

You’re The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Ever Seen is my first nonfiction book. It’s part memoir, part inspiration, and part mindfulness practice. Why me you might ask, Why not? I am the only person in the world with my unique combination of experiences. I am passionate, willing and I am here now. My website, theloveletterprojects.com is home to my new blog, Bliss. Happiness not Required (a mindfulness practice shared).

I am 64 year old retired corporate executive. I sit daily in mindful meditation and spend considerable time during the remainder of the day being receptive and open to my internal and external experiences. The intent of my present practice is to more fully embody basic Buddhist teachings.

My work experience has been exclusive to ‘for-profit’ institutions and involved leading large teams in new product development and serving on the boards of several international 50-50 joint ventures. My forte includes team-based planning, problem solving and developing win-win solutions. My academic background includes both technical and business training (MS engineering and MBA).

I stay busy with helping care for three toddler grandchildren in the LA area, fitness and sustainable living, CASA (in application process) and my spiritual practice. My interest in serving on the non-profit board with Deborah Eden Tull is to be of service in lessening the suffering of others in the community.
