Once a Neuroscientist studying brain systems, I now work to transform social systems like school cultures. I co-created the Kind Mind school program: weekly mindfulness, compassion and nature-connection practices, weaved into social-emotional lessons. We mentor teachers to guide Kind Mind lessons on their own when they are ready. I also create mindful experiences with art for SB Museum of Art. I envision incorporating nature immersion experiences in Kind Mind that lead organically to education and motivation toward wise climate actions and a sense of belonging.
