Millie Wright
Mindfulness Teacher • Mindful Campus Project

Millie Wright is a mother, lover of nature, gardener, yoga practitioner, and mindfulness meditation teacher. Millie has been meditating for 27 years. She was inspired to learn meditation after going through a period of time dealing with some challenges and life changes, which left her feeling anxious and at times ungrounded. She first learned Transcendental meditation and gradually felt a sense of calm, clarity, and ease in her daily life. During the next 23 years, Millie attended many retreats and workshops on different forms of meditation and in 2012 started focusing more on Insight meditation.

Millie is a graduate of the 2-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program, an intensive training program of the Awareness Training Institute at the University of California Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, led by Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield. Her core teachers are Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach, and Rick Hanson, although, she draw on the great knowledge of many other teachers today - Jon Kabat-Zinn, Sharon Salzberg, Kristin Neff, Joseph Goldstein, and Dr. Daniel Siegel.

Millie is a firm believer that the practice of mindfulness has the potential to bring about a more peaceful coexistence in our world today. She believes meditation opens the way to a better knowing of our true nature and creates a foundation for thriving throughout life with all its many challenges and beauty.
