Ingrid is a Wellness and Transformational Coach, Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher, Bodyworker, and Energy Healer. She marries her extensive knowledge from working with the body for over 20 years along with over a decade of mindfulness meditation practice to facilitate people’s understanding of their unique mind-body connection.
She says, “As a bodyworker, I have seen and lived the truth in the mind/body connection, witnessing firsthand the cost to those who neglect the small, and sometimes big, signals their body sends. I believe that awareness of our unique mind/body connection creates the foundation for health to arise, in all its forms, throughout the entirety of one’s life.”
Ingrid stumbled upon mindfulness, or insight meditation, over a decade ago during an extremely challenging period in her life. She explains, “My husband, a software specialist, had been out of work for over a year and a half, and as a massage therapist I was working day and night to make ends meet. When he was laid off, as many others were during that time period, we never imagined it would be close to two years before he was back at work. Desperate for a break, and knowing I needed to fulfill continuing education credits to maintain my massage therapy license, I signed up for an advanced massage workshop. Five days before the workshop began I was contacted by the facility and notified that not enough people had signed up for the workshop, so they had canceled it, but that I was welcome to take another workshop offered during the same time frame. I selected a workshop called -Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation - thinking to myself…hmmm, that sounds relaxing. Little did I know then that in ten years’ time, I’d have attended over 10 silent retreats and be teaching meditation. My life was permanently altered by that twist of fate.”
By teaching evidence-based mindfulness techniques that increase our awareness of our unique mind-body connection, and leading personalized mind-body discovery coaching sessions, Ingrid empowers her clients to connect with their body’s innate wisdom and deep internal resources for healing.
Her mission is to inspire, guide, and support people in uncovering their unique “Truth”, using the conduit of their own bodies, to connect them to their innate source of light, energy and power, so that they can naturally create a life that uniquely reflects their vision of abundance, joy, and health.
