Biography

Clara Irwin was introduced to mindfulness while working in a hospital setting after graduating from The School of Social Work at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Opportunities presented themselves early on in her career to study and practice mindfulness in retreat settings, meditation groups, and training.

Her interest in teaching mindfulness to youth lead her to the Mindful Schools Program. She has continued to deepen her personal practice and is a qualified MBSR teacher. She is grateful to be able to share with others the wisdom and practice of mindfulness which has allowed her to live in the present moment with compassion for herself and others.
