Alexa Redner has been practicing meditation since 2003. She holds a BA in Visual Arts and MA in Creation Spirituality from Naropa University.
Alexa has been an educator in many realms over the last twenty years, dancing between the worlds of being a Waldorf Kindergarten teacher, program teacher for Mindful Schools, and Eating Disorders/Body Positive Educator at Beyond Hunger. Alexa is currently a mentor for Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach’s Mindfulness Meditation Certification Program and teaches for Cloud Sangha, leading weekly community discussion groups, meditations, immersion sanghas, and individual mentoring sessions.
As a Body Love activist, Alexa is interested in exploring how dharma practices can unwind the mind from the cultural conditioning of body shame and open to the heart to the sacred quality of living in a body on the Earth. As a student of Rob Burbea and Catherine McGee’s Soulmaking Dharma, Alexa brings a playful and soft approach to meditation practice.
Alexa lives with her fiddler husband and young son in Portland, Oregon.
