Katie Dutcher, Summer Programs Manager
Instructor for Custom Language Services
Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey
I’ve trained, practiced, and studied mindfulness since 2010, and I am interested in helping provide opportunities to learn about and practice mindfulness both in our Middlebury community and in the wider Monterey community. I am currently in the process of completing a certification program with the Center for Mindfulness, founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn, to be a mindfulness facilitator. I blog about mindfulness, and since January 2015 I have led a community mindfulness group which offers regularly scheduled mindful movement and guided meditations. This fall, I will be developing and leading mindfulness workshops for high-school students at Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, and I hope to work in other area schools as well.
I am currently leading 20-30 minute guided meditation sessions on Wednesdays at 5:00 pm on the MIIS campus in McGowan, room 215.
