Meet Laurie Hallihan

Mindfulness Coach and Educator

I began practicing meditation over 30 years ago. While it did help the sometimes crippling depression I suffered from, I found I was inconsistent with my practice. It was not until 8 years ago, when I developed Fibromyalgia and hip dysplasia in both of my hips that caused me severe limitations in daily activities, like walking, that I knew I had to make a change. I found a therapist who specialized in mindfulness therapy and she recommended me looking into University of California, San Diego’s Center for Mindfulness.


The first class I took was Mindful Self-Compassion and it changed my life. Every part of my body and mind told me that this was the way of experiencing true change in my life. Since then, I took several more classes at UCSD and quickly realized that I wanted to share the insights I found through my mindfulness practice. Mindfulness changed and continues to change my life in profound and unexpected ways.

"Laurie Hallihan has a very natural way of teaching mindfulness and self compassion. She has a keen intuition and is mindful in her own practice.  I have taken her class and also used her services in a one on one setting. She listens thoughtfully and guides each student empathetically.  There are a variety of exercises she offers, which are practiced and discussed in class. Implementing these in my every day life has brought calm to stressful situations. I even have less body pain. Tune into Laurie’s classes if you like a teacher who puts her whole heart and soul into helping others."
