For most of her adult life Eilen has been engaged in work for non-profit organizations, either as a contractor, employee, volunteer, or board member. Most recently her contracting activities revolve around helping various US-based authors and spiritual teachers with their communications, website content development, membership and fundraising, events and retreat coordination, and building their local and virtual networks. She’s a long-time meditator, now training to teach mindfulness to youth or socially marginalized groups.  Her dream is that one day there is a place downtown where anyone from any walk of life can drop in and sit in meditation or share some meaningful conversation over a cup of tea in an accessible, welcoming space.
