About the teacher
Christiane is a certified mindfulness meditation teacher within the International Mindfulness Teachers Association having completed Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program.
Her approach and philosophy are based in equal measure on sound Western scientific knowledge and on contemplative approaches. On the scientific side, she relies on her background as a biologist (PhD) and a psychologist (MA) to understand and describe the human being as interconnected layers of body, emotions, and mind. On the contemplative side, she draws on 15 years of meditation experience within various traditions.
Christiane holds a PhD in biology from the University of Paris and has had a 20-year career in the pharmaceutical industry research and development. She recently completed a M.A. in Transpersonal Psychology at Sofia University in Palo Alto. She has taught yoga and mindfulness meditation in Dallas for the last 15 years.
