About The Teacher
Acharya Dr. Maureen Hall is a Chiropractic Physician, Acupuncturist and Energy Healer specializing in mindfulness-based interventions for stress, and workplace wellness. She has been teaching the eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course at Missouri University of Science and Technology, each semester, since 2010-2017, and St. John’s Integrative Medicine in Springfield, MO 2006 and 2008.
Acharya Dr. Maureen has practiced Vipassana meditation for over 15 years and has completed extensive trainings including: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction in Mind-Body Medicine Professional Training with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli, the 2 Year Spirit Rock/IMS Community Dharma Leader Program and the 2 year Dharmacharya Program with Venerables Pannavati and Pannadipa.
She is also a singer/songwriter who specializes in songs that speak directly to, and reinforce the principles being taught in her MBSR courses. She has found over the years that we tend to remember and take in, to a deeper level, those things we can sing about or put to music. So songs and chants are an integral part of how she teaches these classes.
Acharya Dr. Hall has also been teaching one-on-one individualized mindful meditation classes since 2000 and has a long history of assisting others in establishing and maintaining a daily practice.
