Jenny (she/her) lives on the unceded ancestral lands of the Lisjan and Muwekma Ohlone tribes, in what has been colonized as Berkeley, CA. Jenny has been meditating since she lived in India in 2006. Her life was restored by the healing powers of nature and she finds great joy in sharing the profound wisdom of these teachings with others.
Jenny has a deep-seated commitment to social and environmental justice and active engagement in anti-racist and pro-justice practices. She continues to engage in this lifelong work in various ways, such as the White Awake trainings. In her work with Inclusion Outdoors, Jenny convenes, facilitates, and supports partners, often across multiple sectors, to expand equitable access to nature.
For Jenny, nature-based meditation is a combination of healing our bodies, Mother Earth, and our connections to each other. It is an opportunity to connect more deeply with the rhythms and cycles of the moon, seasons, and elements; to slow down, tune in, and heal our inner and outer nature. Jenny is currently enrolled in the One Earth Sangha Ecosattva training that applies Buddhist teachings to addressing the ecological suffering of our shared world. In her free time, Jenny enjoys swimming in natural bodies of water and camping with her husband and their two children, a proudly neurodivergent, gender-neutral kiddo and an enthusiastic hip-hop dancing daughter.
