My name is Lena.
I'm a mindfulness expert and organizational consultant who has taught thousands of people across the globe the practice of mindfulness to improve mood, decrease stress, and counteract emotional reactivity.
Raised in Bangkok in the Theravadan Buddhist tradition, I've practiced mindfulness meditation for over 3 decades. I take a holistic approach teaching secular mindfulness, combining research in organizational behavior, psychology and neuroscience to support individuals and organizations.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University, my doctoral research focused on underserved communities' use of mindfulness and story-telling to protect the environment.

“Lena has a gift of combining science-based research and simple practices with a sense of humor. Her class convinced the even the most skeptical members of our team."
"What I have learned from her has changed how I approach different stressors. How I show up at work, and with my family. I'm more resilient and self aware thanks to what she taught us."
“While I expected to learn relaxation techniques from Dr. Adams Kim, I didn't expect to learn so much about... myself."
