Elana Rosenbaum MS, MSW, LICSW

Pioneering instructor in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, along with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli, Elana has been integrating mindfulness into daily life as a psychotherapist, certified MBSR teacher and leader in the mindfulness field since 1984.  Her authority and wisdom, forged through her surviving cancer and a stem cell transplant, and her many years teaching and helping others be well, brings an authenticity and depth to her work.

Elana is sought after internationally as a mindfulness coach and consultant, speaker, and workshop and retreat leader. An expert in adapting the MBSR program to a variety of diverse environments and populations, Elana creates inspirational lectures that she enjoys sharing all over the world.  She’d love to explore with you how mindfulness can be tailored for your group, organization or institution.
