Lori Granger, LMFT
Director of The Center For Mindfulness
Psychology Today Profile
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC # 46228) and began a meditation practice during intercontinental trips as an international broadcast consultant.
My broadcast consulting career was interrupted by Sept. 11, 2001 and the obstacles to travel that ensued.
Mindfulness meditation provided the perfect vehicle for authentic self-discovery and purpose which led to the unlikely career transition from broadcasting to Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy.
I have participated in trainings with these teachers and authors:
- Jon Kabat-Zinn, the father of mainstream mindfulness and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and author of numerous books including Wherever You Go, There You Are
- Jack Kornfield, teacher and author of seminal books integrating Eastern and Western psychotherapy including his newest, The Wise Heart: The Art and Science of Buddhist Psychology
- John Welwood, author of numerous books on Eastern and Western psychotherapy including Toward a Psychology of Awakening.
- Tara Brach, teacher and author of Radical Acceptance
Bringing mindfulness practices consistently and under one roof to Central California and establishing The Center for Mindfulness is a deeply personal and passionate pursuit and the culmination of years of study and practice.
My belief, which research is proving, is that we all would benefit from the enrichment mindfulness offers._____________________________
