Rochelle McLaughlin, MS, OTR/L, MBSR
Mindfulness instructor, holistic healthcare practitioner
Rochelle is a teacher of mindfulness and neuro-social-psychophysiological perspectives and practices at San Jose State University (SJSU). She has taught intensive mindfulness meditation to several hundred participants through SJSU and internationally and she is humbled by her own profound and ongoing healing journey into the depths of her own embodied experience living in these troubled times. Rochelle McLaughlin has witnessed the integration of mindfulness as a healing balm for the heart, body, mind, and soul as well as a practice for transforming relationships to self and other in her own life and in-patient care settings such as mental and physical disabilities, pediatric care, cancer care, and chronic pain.
Her courses on integrating mindfulness and healthcare are rooted in a devotion to help society slow down, to remember our interdependence with each other and nature, and awaken a deep honoring of our human condition: strengthening our capacity for remaining centered in our heart and tethered to our soul, especially in the midst of these intense times.
She sees our personal practice as a kind of radical activism. It is profound, transformative, and in and of itself builds and nourishes the soil for the development of new narratives and new Ways of Being we so desperately need. Rochelle is committed to a revolution in healthcare, building a vibrant community of practitioners inspired to join us on this journey of weaving mindfulness into institutions and becoming healing agents for meaningful change.
Rochelle is the publisher of Revolutionary Wellness Magazine and the producer of Revolutionary Wellness Talk Radio on Voice America’s Health and Wellness Channel. She is a Certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher and she is the founding director and lead instructor for SJSU’s Mindfulness-Based Healthcare Practitioner (MBHP) Advanced Certificate program (www.sjsu.edu/mindfulness).
