The work of Paloma Cain, MA, psychology, bridges the worlds between traditional Buddhist practice and contemporary mindfulness in clinical settings, seeing the commonality as the desire to relieve suffering. Experienced in teaching MBSR, mindful parenting, foundations of mindfulness classes, day-longs, sitting groups, and short retreats, she now works primarily in training and mentoring. She is authorized to teach by Trudy Goodman and Jack Kornfield. In Paloma’s spare time, she’ll be found playing with her family, wandering open spaces, reading, and writing.
In the words of her long-term mentees, Paloma is: Flexible. Responsive to what is alive in the moment. Supports the process of following one’s own insights and behaving in integrity. Vulnerable. Explores accountability and how to create safer inclusive space for folks across identity spectrums. Open-hearted. Willing to practice “off the beaten path.” Honors an individual’s journey. Trauma-informed. Emergent. Trusting the wisdom in the room. Honoring multiple wisdom traditions.
