The Face of Meditation
Sarah McLean is the director of Sedona Meditation Training and Retreats. Often called the face of mainstream meditation, she has been teaching meditation and mind/body health programs since the early 1990's. She worked with Dr. Deepak Chopra for over eight years and was one of the founding directors of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing. Throughout her career she has studied and worked with prominent figures such as Debbie Ford, Margot Anand, and Gary Zukav. She also served as the director for Byron Katie's School for the Work. Sarah spent months in an ashram in India, taught English to Tibetan Buddhist nuns, lived in a Zen Buddhist Training Center, attended the Ayurvedic Program with Dr. Lad at Mount Madonna… and now she brings all of her talents, experience and relationships to her practice in Sedona.
