elizabeth perrymanElizabeth Perryman, PhD, is the founder of Upstream Mindfulness LLC.  She teaches mindfulness to leaders to help them meet the demands of their positions with less stress and greater resilience to shield against burnout. She focuses on practical skills of applied mindfulness that balance self-compassion with compassion for others. Research shows that “upstream” investment in a leader’s well-being consistently benefits the people and outcomes “downstream”. Having served as a Christian educator in the PC(USA) and as the director of spiritual life at a boarding school, Perryman understands the power of mindfulness in ministry: it is the oxygen mask that kept her from passing out! She is a qualified teacher of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through UMASS Medical School; a certified teacher of Koru Mindfulness for college students and other emerging adults; and she is trained to teach children in K-12 through both Mindful Schools and The Mindfulness in Schools Project. She lives in Colorado Springs and likes to hike, kayak, write, laugh, and create stuff from recycled
