Welcome! I’m Anne. I’m a teacher, writer, and mentor on the path of mindfulness, embodied dharma, and creativity.

I lead retreats and classes (both in person and online) with a focus on somatic practice, creative expression, and connection with the natural world.

I love writing from and about daily life practice. My books include the memoir The Mama Sutra, the novel Enlightenment for Idiots, and the mindful yoga manifesto Moving Into Meditation.

I also love supporting others in their practice. I’m a senior retreat teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and a guiding teacher for the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program. I mentor meditation practitioners and writers worldwide.
