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.
