My name is Cecilia Howard and I am a teacher/instructor of mindfulness and meditation. I have been practicing meditation for well over 21 years now and have found it to be a most useful and fulfilling means of being with the stresses and strains of daily life in a more purposeful way.

While my earlier meditation and mindfulness experience was rooted in a Buddhist tradition, I do not consider myself a Buddhist. What I am is someone who recognizes the benefits and vital need of making  meditation and mindfulness practice a daily part of my life.

In addition, I have been trained to teach MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) the program established by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Shrewsbury, MA. This groundbreaking training program was established over 30 years ago  for people to learn how to face the ups and downs of daily life, while feeling more confident about their ability to take charge of their health and well-being. It has now given rise to well over 750 programs offered world wide.

I also have attended and participated in numerous additional training programs, retreats and seminars both professional and nonprofessional in nature, regarding mindfulness, meditation and MBSR. This is a personal passion of mine and one that I know can do so much for people in a positive way. Life long learning, as well as an embodiment of the practice enhances my ability to train and guide other people in an informed way.

My former career/work experience was in both the banking and manufacturing industries in a sales/marketing and management capacity. In addition to my management responsibilities, I took a leadership role in developing and training, company-wide, employees in the area of sales/new business development, leadership skills, as well as team building strategies, just to name a few.


I am also a fine art trained artist and writer of a blog called The Mindful Matrix.
