Heather Fenton (née Finlayson)
Meditation Teacher and RYT200 Certified Yoga Instructor

Heather first met with Buddhist teachings in the Fall of 2000, and has since spent her time avidly exploring the nature of mind. Drawn initially to Mahayana teachings on emptiness (shunyata) and the Lojong practices of training the mind, she studied almost exclusively within a westernized-Tibetan tradition for her first decade of practice. Her path then led her in the direction of nondual teachings, Vipassana practices, and generally into a more embodied somatic approach. Most recently, Heather has taken up Hatha asana practice and graduated from a year-long 200-hour yoga teacher training program in December 2017.

Over the years, Heather has led regular meditation sessions and workshops. Her main interest has been to introduce simple meditation and mindfulness practices without cultural or religious trappings, and to encourage others – whatever their background or beliefs – to build and sustain a daily practice of stillness and inner reflection.

Heather is an independent graphic designer by trade, who lives and loves with her husband, teenage stepkids and two teeny tiny wiener dogs in Port Colborne, Ontario.
