Meghan is a yoga teacher and contemplative educator whose teaching is inspired by the intelligence of living systems as studied through yoga, buddhism, and the applied systems thinking modalities of permaculture and deep ecology. Since studying permaculture and environmental sustainability, Meghan has been particularly interested in how consciousness and the way we think influences the way we live, act, and design for a world that is ecological and just. She integrates embodied contemplative modalities into the framework of ecological design as a way to grow our ecological thinking minds. She holds an MA in Contemplative Education from Naropa University where she focused on embodiment, meditation, and ecological thinking and learning.
