Kristen Luman earned her BA in Psychology from Portland State University where she focused her studies on Paranormal Psychology and Human Development. She then went on to study at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute where she became a certified hypnotherapist also becoming a member of the American Hypnosis Association.

Why I practice meditation:
I did a lot of research on how meditation effects the mind body connection and found it to be very beneficial in stress reduction and creating an over all better sense of happiness.
Why I teach meditation:
I love to see people's faces before they meditate compared to after. When the students leave each class, they look younger, they're glowing, and they seem to just float on out.
