Madeline Ebelini, MA, RYT

Once upon a time I was a stressed out lawyer, insomniac, and chronic worrier. My daily life included anxiety attacks, chronic pain, irritability, and despair. Ultimately I was diagnosed with cancer. Then, I discovered something amazing! Through mind-body practices like yoga and meditation I could quiet my worrying, chattering mind. I learned embodiment and compassion practices for working skillfully with unconscious emotions driving all my stress. This awakened a spiritual enthusiasm that animates my life today and has inspired me to do many things. I left the practice of law, went back to school, and earned a Master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University, a Buddhist-inspired center for contemplative education founded by renowned Tibetan meditation master, Chogyam Trungpa. There my graduate work explored mindfulness as the context for growth-fostering relationships, healing community, and integral transformative practice. Since 2010 I have been a teacher and student of meditation, yoga, personal growth, and spirituality. I earned certification from U. C. San Diego’s School of Medicine as a teacher of the internationally acclaimed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. I am a member of the teaching faculty at eMindful where I deliver live web-based programs for stress reduction and weight management. The Soma & Psyche program is my most recent project! It incorporates my life experiences, training, and most beloved experiential practices to guide you on your path to intention-driven healing, transformation, and joy.

Home practice and consistent class attendance are essential for participation in this program. Upon registration you will receive audio and video recordings of the guided meditations and yoga sequence which will become the foundation for our work. You can do this!
