Angie Harris is a mother to two brilliant boys and aunt to eight beautiful nieces and nephews. As a teenager Angie suffered the sudden loss of her beloved mother, Rosemarie. It was then she was introduced to contemplative practices such as yoga and meditation. She quickly realized the more she practiced, the more comfort she felt, even while grieving such a tragic loss.
A decade later, Angie's sister Stephy was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Stephy fought bravely, but lost her battle in 2014. It was at this time that Angie's meditation practice turned outward, toward teaching. She wanted to share meditation with her young nieces and nephews, who are grieving the loss of their mother, as she was once taught to do. To learn how to deliver lessons to children, Angie attended the Mindful Schools K-12 curriculum training in 2012. The experience led to her first professional writing project. The children's meditation teachings have come to life in Angie's first book, Mad to Glad, A Mindfulness Lesson on Emotion, available for sale everywhere books are sold. She is honored to share meditation with those who grace Stephy's Place, both children and adults.
She loves being outdoors with her husband Toby and their two boys Kellen and Kieren. Her days are happily spent playing with the kids, practicing yoga, sharing essential oils, and deepening a daily meditation practice.
Angie is currently attending the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teaching program through UMASS Medical School in Shrewsbury Massachusetts. To learn more or to contact Angie directly, visit www.MindfulAromatherapy.com
