Erika’s Meditation Background

In her classes, Erika specializes in integrating traditional Buddhist practices with key concepts and techniques from Western Psychology to help people navigate the challenges of daily life and work. Erika teaches regularly at Nyingma Institute of Tibetan Studies in Berkeley, CA, through Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE), and offers workshops elsewhere on request.
