With more than twenty-five years of formal and informal meditation practice, Lara Plutte now leads parents in the practice of Mindfulness. It was when Lara became a mom, 13 years ago, that mindfulness meditation became her poignant practice. Lara has steeped herself since in mindfulness meditation to support the deep desire to be present for, accept, even embrace the wild ride of parenthood. Lara now combines her experience as a social worker, a mom and mindfulness teacher to lead parents in support of being present. Lara has a Masters in Social Work and the Arts, is a graduate of the InsightLA Facilitator Training Program, and a wife and mom to two boys, two cats and one crazy love fest of a dog.
