Join mindfulness practitioner Nicole Dunn for a presentation: Mindfulness and Chronic Pain.
Nicole lives with the chronic nerve condition CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome) and has been a mindfulness practitioner, facilitator, and leader in the tradition Thich Nhat Hanh for close to 20-years. In this session, she will share her personal journey of developing a chronic and painful nerve condition 15 years ago, at age 26, and how the application of mindfulness and meditation is a critical component of her pain management strategy.
Nicole organizes and leads the practice of mindfulness through intentional circles, classes, events, retreats, and private consultations. She is a regular writer for Montana Woman magazine and an active blogger on the subject of mindfulness and is the founder and program director for the Be Here Now sangha, a mindfulness community based in Missoula, MT in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, which has been operating weekly since 2002.
