In 2008 Kristi read in a book about how to quiet the mind by focusing
on the sensations in the inner body. After a few years of practicing
in this way she took the first of many classes on the practice of
Insight Meditation and began to deepen her own study and practice.
Kristi's focus in her daily practice and in her teaching is
continually returning to the present moment through the body and the
breath. She's learned that the more present she is the more she feels
like herself, feels clear, and feels at ease. This is what she aims to
help her students discover for themselves.
Kristi teaches Fundamentals
of Insight Meditation at Insight Meditation Ann Arbor, leads weekly
meditation at Glacier Hills Senior Living Community, and has a regular
yoga practice. She is a retired UM faculty member and former public
school teacher, has three adult children, and enjoys gardening with
her husband in Ann Arbor.
