More about Eden Kozlowski
Co-Editor of Meditation
(See Eden's interviews on ATH with Dr. Judith Orloff, psychiatrist and NY Times best-selling author; Sona Mehring, Founder/CEO of Caring Bridge and named one of 2011′s “Most Influential Women in Technology” by Fast Company; and Sarah McLean, the "face of mainstream meditation" and one of the founding directors of the Chopra Center of Wellbeing. More also on The Huffington Post.)
Eden Kozlowski gently moves people via meditation/mindfulness into the beautiful, authenticness of their being.
With interesting beginnings... Eden was raised in the deep south in the tiny college town of Statesboro, Georgia USA. Graduating with a degree in journalism/minor in advertising from the Univ of GA in Athens, she worked several years on the account side of the ad industry in Atlanta. Always more creatively bent, Eden returned to design school at the renowned and insanely intense Portfolio Center. Eventually she went on to become Vice President/Creative Director and then, after having two children with her husband Rick, took her work life by the horns and founded a creative recruiting company.
During that crazy fifteen year stint in corporate advertising (Eden still states that she is "a recovering ad creative"), she happily stumbled upon Dr. Neala Peake – teacher, author and co-founder of AllThingsHealing.com. It was upon that meeting that her life began to transform in a more peaceful and balanced way. Eden studied meditation with Dr. Peake for six years and then per Neala’s kind insistence... started teaching. A now avid student/practitioner since the year 2000, she then founded her own meditation/mindfulness-based company Just Be, LLC based in Akron, Ohio in 2006.
To wrap it up – Eden provides spiritual, motivational, energetic and intuitive counsel as a speaker, meditation/mindfulness facilitator and Reiki Master. Within this work she integrates her corporate background, her role as a mother as well as her past as a certified exercise instructor, hospice volunteer and martial arts student. Through Just Be and her staff, they conduct weekly classes, retreats, private sessions, skype sessions as well as mindfulness programs in corporate, healthcare and educational settings. Please reach out to her for requests for private sessions, classes or questions at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regarding AllThingsHealing.com Eden proclaims, "I was Supervising Editor here for two years, and it was so cool to work again with Dr. Peake and now to return as Co-Editor on the Meditation page... for all of it, I am truly grateful." See her introduction below.

About J. Stewart Dixon
Co-Editor of Meditation
Hey there- Jeff here. (You can call me Jeff if we meet in person, talk, or email.) I became a spiritual seeker for the same reason that many of us did- I was unhappy, unfulfilled, and basically felt like I was born on the wrong planet. My search began when I was in my late teens and continued until I was about forty. (Yeah I was a slow learner) I studied with just about everyone who would give me the time of day- mostly nondual, zen and advaita teachers, (I bet you know a lot of them) but also a lot of authors, therapists and counselors. I'm not formally trained- just beaten, bruised and (thank god) healed and science news made whole again by this great teacher/school called life. In short- I was sick- sought out the medicine- took the medicine- and, lo' and behold, (despite my fumbling self) – was healed. (Guess that makes me the perfect candidate to write for allthingshealing.com)
So now, here I am dispensing that very same medicine (what I call blue collar enlightenment). During my spiritual seeking I was smart enough to remember and write down some of the things I learned along the way- basically the nitty gritty nuts and bolts of the enlightenment/awakening process- without all the fancy lingo or the specialized philosophy. I've stripped it down to a palatable, meaningful (and most importantly) blue collar achievable level. In other words folks, if you're looking to find lasting fulfillment, unconditional peace, and an on-going sense of wellbeing- that your heart knows is possible- here's how ya do it: www.attainingpie.com. Maybe this is one of those right teacher, right student moments.
Some details about my current life: I'm married, (Elisabeth) have a six year old son (Jeremy) a cat (Gypsy) and a dog (Lilly). I live in the suburbs of a little town in central Virginia called Charlottesville. I like to flyfish, hike and tool around on my kayak on the lake that's in our backyard. I used to do blue collar contract work to make a living. These days I've been trying to make a buck being a blue collar enlightenment and mindfulness teacher. (Some days I wish I'd stuck with the power tools) That's my story and... I may or may not stick to it.
Welcome to this little oasis called allthingshealing.com- a great little website to soak your tired soul in. Stick around and rest a while. May you find peace, wellness, love and happiness.
