Laura’s personal meditation practice began in the attic of her family home on an old carpet swatch placed by a window, way back in Jr.
Mindfulness meditation offers us a similar experience as we become aware of physical sensations while we sit, walk, do simple daily tasks with engaged attention or even lay down in a restful yet alert posture (this may be the most compassionate pose if you live with a chronic health condition that makes sitting or walking difficult). What an amazing introduction into the beauty and friendliness towards ones own sacred vessel these foundational yoga experiences were.
She did not know she was meditating, did not have the vocabulary to describe it as such back then.

With patience and nurturance through asana practice, meditation and the wisdom of a kind and wise teacher, the cultivation of these seeds of love could begin, and their tender roots and shoots began to grow into a lifelong passion.
She receives ongoing support from Sheila and even though she might not realize it, Sylvia Boorstein, who Laura had the pleasure of studying with at a 5 day silent meditation retreat co-facilitated by Sylvia and Sheila (a dynamic meditation duo!) Laura also had the honor of taking an online metta meditation class with Sylvia through Spirituality & Practice.
Laura has participated in several online meditation courses with Gil Fronsdal through Audio Dharma, and a heart opening online class with Janice Lynne Lundy called Buddha Chicks.


She was called upon as a featured educator at events such as Cornerstone Fellowship, a leadership program offered through the Foundation for Jewish Camping and Jewbilee, a retreat offered through TCI (The Curriculum Initiative).
