Krista began meditating in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh in the mid 1990's. She started attending SIMS and practicing Vipassana in 2000. Krista's background is in movement and in helping people become more deeply connected to their bodies. During the past 20 years, while practicing authentic movement, InterPlay, and meditation, she has deeply explored the body as a foundation for presence. Krista is certified to teach the UK Mindfulness In Schools Project Teen Curriculum. She teaches the 4-week Teen Mindfulness Meditation Class twice a year and has been a staff member at several iBme (Inward Bound Mindfulness Education) Pacific Northwest Teen Mindfulness Retreats. Krista is delighted to be leading quarterly classes at SIMS called SpiritPlay where sangha members will have the chance to connect with their bodies and with others in a safe, creative, and affirming environment.
