Wellbeing Meetup: Dynamic Mindfulness for Reducing Stress Response

September 23, 2020, 3:10 - 4:00 Eastern, 50 minutes

Webinar Faculty:  Jenny Andrews

About the Event: Be Well Wednesdays will take place on Zoom on Wednesdays at 3:10-4:00 pm Eastern (12:10-1:00 pm Pacific).

Each session will include an experiential practice (meditation, mindfulness, gratitude, journaling, etc.) and facilitated discussion about sustaining well-being in public defense.

About the Faculty:  A child of counterculture, raised off the grid by back-to-the-land hippies on the Lost Coast in Northern California, Jenny Andrews is a graduate of Cornell University and Harvard Law School. She started her career as a public defender in Oakland, California in 1996, but left after 7 years and didn’t practice law for three years. She returned to public defense work in 2007, and has continued working as a public defender in Sonoma County and Santa Barbara County. She teaches on the faculty of Gideon’s Promise, the National Association for Public Defense, the National Criminal Defense College, the Trial Advocacy Workshop at Harvard Law School, and the California Public Defenders Association. She has taught in public defense training programs in Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, Montana, and New Jersey. She has been a certified yoga teacher since 2004 and worked in the education department of Yoga Journal magazine 2003-2006. She believes in finding supportive practices to sustain a career in public defense—hers include yoga and meditation, writing, hiking along the beach with her husband and daughter, and tending a rural apple farm in Northern California.
