Julian Kehs, M.Ed maintains a dedicated meditation practice, and became involved with InsightLA in 2013. They began their journey into facilitation by assisting Amy Spies’s Mindful Writer’s Group at InsightLA and recently completed InsightLA’s Mindfulness Facilitator Training program. Julian is especially interested in heart practices and makes it their goal to keep an open heart both in their own practice and in facilitation with others. They enjoy attending silent retreats at least once per year to deepen their practice.
Julian currently guides drop-in sitting groups at both InsightLA locations, occasionally leads the Mindful Writers Group at Olympic, and is part of the teacher rotation of InsightLA’s Queer Mindfulness group at the Melrose location. An experienced educator in a variety of settings, Julian is also a musician, writer, and professional fundraiser.
