I am an author, artist, and certified mindfulness teacher with
a BS in Applied Learning and Development from The University of Texas
College of Education. I've been practicing meditation
and mindfulness for over 12 years and have led numerous workshops on the practice and science of mindfulness.
Mindfulness practice has played a huge role in helping me to live my best life and I love to share the practice with others through writing and art.
My goal in writing "Remind Me to Breathe" was to help open lines of communication about experiences and feelings between adults, adolescents, and children mindfully and in a safe and fun way. We have never needed this more than we do today. Hopefully, talking within the safety of the framework of mindfulness practice offered by the poems and “conversation starters,” in this book will create opportunities to explore feelings together so we can all travel a little lighter on our journey through this incredible life.
Please enjoy following the single-line book cover illustration as it unfolds below. I created all of the drawings in Remind Me to Breathe from single lines to be used as tools for practicing mindfulness. You can trace the line illustrations with your finger or a pencil to bring yourself back into the present moment. There are also coloring and journaling pages to bring your practice to life. Fun for kids and teens too!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
I love meeting my readers and would love to connect with you and your group/school/organization. Whether you are a teacher, homeschooler, wellness practitioner, parent or anyone in between, I would love to come and read from "Remind Me to Breathe" and share the poetry and practice with you. I am available for both in person or Zoom readings. Please reach out for scheduling. Hope to meet you soon!
(In person readings are available in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and the surrounding area.)
