Amy Edelstein

Amy Edelstein, educator, author, and public speaker is a powerful communicator of ideas and beliefs that can help us transform ourselves and the culture we live in. In 2014, Amy founded the Inner Strength Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports several thousand inner-city teens in Philadelphia with in-school mindfulness and cultural development training. Based on her 35-years experience with contemplative practice and developmental philosophy, this program uniquely incorporates mindfulness stress reduction tools with adolescent neuroscience and cultural development so students learn skills to self-regulate and see their experience in a broader context. Amy has taught around the world, offering meditation and transformative philosophy programs to adults in professional development programs and retreat settings. She is cofounder of Emergence Education and its publishing arm Emergence Education Press, and is author of four books. More at www.InnerStrengthFoundation.net and www.amyedelstein.com
