Meet Laurie Hallihan

Mindfulness Mentor 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.  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.  I am now a qualified teacher trained at University of California, San Diego's Center for Mindfulness.  My greatest joy is sharing these practices with people in hopes that it can change their life as it did mine.
