Daniel Turissini

Biography
A native Washingtonian, Daniel's first brush with meditation came as a burned-out corporate professional desperately seeking a non-pharma way to alleviate stress and anxiety. Since his first meditation at the Smithsonian, his passion for wellness led to intense study of stress, sleep, and mindfulness as well as formal MBSR training and certification. Daniel's style, while grounded in the latest evidence-based research, is approachable and designed as a training ground for the mind to exercise cognition, creativity, and compassion. Daniel looks forward to seeing you on the cushion!
