Nina LaRosa For the past 10 years Nina La Rosa has taught the "user-friendly but industrial strength" approach to mindfulness meditation developed by Buddhist teacher and scholar, Shinzen Young. Shinzen’s pragmatic and scientific approach helped Nina experience a freeing shift in her sense of self and the world and she became inspired to share mindfulness meditation as her life’s work. In 2012, while working in clinical neuroscience research on mindfulness at University of Vermont, Nina founded a mindfulness meditation training and psychotherapy practice to support people in their meditation and mental health. She continues this work today and specializes in addressing chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, and spiritual emergence challenges. Her heart is most alive when assisting people through sticky spots on the meditative path. Making the dharma accessible and leveraging its potential for healing of systemic injustice also fuels her work. Nina offers her services in-person at Stillpoint Center in Burlington, Vermont and online. As a new mother, Nina’s also found the crucible of parenting to be a great way to put mindfulness to the test!

When he was introduced to Shinzen Young's paradigm, he was drawn to the system because of its scientific nature and comprehensive overview of practices from various traditions. He has studied and practiced with Shinzen for over ten years and participated in two scientific research studies that utilized the Unified Mindfulness framework.
