About Your Facilitators:


Karen Day integrates mindfulness with psychotherapy at the Daybreak Clinic, and has been personally practicing mindfulness for over 10 years.  She has learned about mindfulness-based therapeutic interventions, not only by formal training in mindfulness studies at the University of Toronto,  but also by her own self-study through retreats and workshops with the teachers who deeply inspire her, including Pema Chodron and Thich Nhat Hanh.

In 2008, Karen was granted a research fellowship which resulted in an extensive study of mindfulness and meditation in social service work at Centennial College.  In partnership with Lorraine Gilks, she co-authored a subsequent inter-disciplinary research initiative, along with cross-professional mindfulness training for teaching and counselling staff at the college.  


Karen leads yearly workshops and retreats for professionals, with organizational clients including the Children’s Aid Society, Global Mind Body, and Better Living Health and Community Services.
