Jeanne 8 new phone




I have been practicing meditation consistently for six years. I have taken classes at Shambhala NYC, Levels 1 and 2 of mindfulness teacher training with David Nichtern at Kaia Yoga, as well as regular Dharma-based meditation classes with Jacoby Ballard. I have frequented Dharma gatherings in NYC through Shambhala and Maha Rose and recently attended a retreat through Presence Collective. I regularly listen to talks and meditations on Insight Timer and podcasts like Ten Percent Happier and On Being.


I am a New York based actress, passionate about storytelling, cultivating community, authenticity and elevating marginalized voices. These values have grown through my involvement in theatre, and are now a driving force in my desire to pursue teaching mindfulness. Coming back to the present moment has had a tremendous impact in my own life and I look forward to sharing these tools with others.

Main teachers

Fleet Maull is the founder of EMI and lead teacher


I am pursuing this mindfulness teacher training to deepen my own practice and to develop the skills necessary to offer meditation instruction. In addition to working with those I am already in direct contact with, I am interested in supporting the practice of mindfulness in underserved communities, such as the aging, and those in prisons.


I would love to record guided meditations and make those available throughout my training.
