Dr. Jamie Marich joins the Abbey Wisdom Council!

JamieMarichHeadshot20142015 copyAbbey of the Arts is delighted to have a Wisdom Council with 12 wise members who enthusiastically support what we do, offer their gifts in service to this community, and provide a sounding board for discernment over future directions.

We welcome Dr. Jamie Marich to our council. She is the creator of Dancing Mindfulness, a wonderful contemplative movement practice which Christine has been certified in. Jamie has also written a great book on the practice which you can find here. She has attended live retreats and pilgrimages with the Abbey, been a guest teacher on our Body Wisdom online course, and is a true kindred soul through her work and spirit!
