Bonnie has spent over 35 years in the health and wellness domain. For 15 years she worked in the medical system as a clinician, researcher and in medical management which helped her cultivate a deep curiosity of the healing process including why some people heal and others don't. Following this curiosity, and an inner calling, she walked away from the life she knew to travel the globe and learn from many cultures and diverse perspectives on healing, wellbeing, compassion and the true nature of healing and happiness. Her first deep dive was at a silent retreat over 25 years ago in northern India where she began realizing that happiness and wellbeing are indeed an inside job.
After three decades training with numerous world-class teachers in the areas of healing, stress reduction, mindfulness, personal and spiritual development, Bonnie continues to share her integral approach, locally and internationally, through private healing and coaching sessions for individuals, public and corporate workshops, retreats, health and wellness consults, teaching the 8-week Mindfulness + Stress Reduction Program and developing customized wellness programming for workplaces.
With a brain for science and a heart for healing, Bonnie offers a compassionate bridge between the perceived polarities of our lives; our inner and outer worlds, the medical and metaphysical models, our head and our heart.
