-Suzanne McClung, Chemistry Teacher, Lakewood Schools, Denver, CO

Meet Berni.

"During my 25 years in education, I taught Biology, coached several sports, served as an advisor, and even lived in a boarding school dorm. After a period of severe grief and health issues, I discovered meditation as a tool to help me be at my very best, both professionally and personally.

I learned how to reverse the very real and devastating impact of stress through simple and easy techniques. And then I started sharing these strategies with my students.

Now, as a certified meditation instructor, I am passionate about helping teachers to restore and sustain balance in life, starting with getting over the guilt of taking a rest. With a master's degree in Biology, I bring a practical research-based approach.

You'll be surprised that meditation doesn’t take a lot of time or discipline in order for it to “work."
