About Mindful Roots
Lindsay Foreman founded Mindful Roots to offer opportunities for individuals and groups to explore mindfulness through workshops, classes, coaching, and intensives. Lindsay has been practicing mindfulness since 1998 and teaching since 2009. She has spent over 4000 hours in formal meditation practice; on retreats, in residential training, and in daily practice.
In 2010 she co-founded the Center for Mindful Learning (CML.). For four years she served as CML’s Program Director where she helped develop the curriculum for Modern Mindfulness, an innovative online program that has been successfully implemented in schools across the country. As the Program Director, she also spearheaded the Mindful City Initiative in Winooski, Vermont. Lindsay has taught mindfulness to over 1000 educators and students. She has also supported prisoners, police officers, social service providers and clients, health care workers, and parents to integrate mindfulness practices into daily life.
For four years, almost daily, she trained with Soryu Forall to learn to teach Shinzen Young’s Basic Mindfulness system. Basic Mindfulness is a secular system that emphasizes depth of experience and practical application of mindfulness in daily life. Lindsay is also certified as a Kripalu yoga teacher.
Before becoming a mindfulness teacher she worked in education and social services for 10 years, serving at-risk youth, women fleeing domestic violence, and homeless families. She is the founder of Mindful Roots and the main teacher and organizer of A Mindful Life.
