About the Instructors 


Diane Hetrick has been studying and practicing in the areas of mind-body healing, mindfulness, meditation, and compassion cultivation most of her adult life. Her more than 30 years of experience as a Physical Therapist working with patients with chronic pain and/or illnesses lead her to explore various body and movement practices, including yoga, dance and qigong, and to explore the area of Mindfulness meditation, in order to help people with stress, pain or dysfunction find more ease, and well-being in their lives.

She completed the Certificate in Mindfulness Facilitation training through the Mindfulness Awareness Research Center (MARC) at UCLA. After completing the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) Teacher Certification Program, offered through the Center for Compassion, Altruism, Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford, she became one of the first certified CCT teachers in the Seattle area. More at:
