Facilitator: Sarah Jane Shangraw, M.S., E-RYT500
Sarah Jane is a Boston-based meditation teacher, Insight Yoga mentor, and end-of-life doula with more than a decade of experience encouraging presence, peace, and purpose among her students and clients.
Her passion for Buddhist psychology and its application to modern life ignited twenty-five years ago while studying religion at Boston University. She has been endorsed to teach by Sarah Powers and, a life-long learner, is currently working with several teachers including studying teaching with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.
In addition to ongoing training, she retreats annually so she can stay fresh and responsive in her teaching and life. (See full bio.)
Over the years I have studied with many renowned teachers, and I can say that Sarah Jane is inspiring. She truly listens and has a unique capacity to both empathize with and see the best in a person, and is therefore a perfect companion with whom to learn to live life as it is.”
