Camille Rae Whitney

Camille began mindfulness practice in 2001 when one of her high school teachers gave her basic instruction and a copy of the book “Nothing Happens Next.” Since then, mindfulness has helped her find more ease, peacefulness, and clarity as well as greater compassion for herself and others. She took Jukkai in December 2013 with Shido Nyogen Roshi at the Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles. Camille is finishing her PhD in Education at Stanford and works as Director of Research for Mindful Schools, a nonprofit that teaches mindfulness to educators and teaches them how to teach mindfulness to students.  She is a co-leader of the Stanford Zen Society.
