About Me

She has meditated across the United States and Mexico from the woods of Washington, mountains in Colorado, to a kayak in the Sea of Cortex where she continues to learn from the diversity of the teachings.

In 2019 & 2020, Moriah is attending the Awake in the Wild Teacher Training led by Spirit Rock Resident Teacher Mark Coleman.   In 2020 & 2021, Moriah is also attending Mark Coleman & Martin Ayland’s Mindfulness Teacher Training to become a Certified Mindfulness Teacher (CMT).
