Breon MichelBreon teaches and writes about resilience and well-being for parents, children, and families.  As a mother of two, she’s passionate about providing support and resources that help mothers and parents get relief from stress, show up at their best, and support the realization of their child’s full potential.

Breon’s programs draw from her deep knowledge of mindfulness, compassion, and resilience and 10+ years of experience facilitating groups.

Breon spent many years facilitating resilience courses for the University of Pennsylvania’s Positive Psychology Center, including the Penn Resilience Program, which trained teachers, parents and school administrators in the core skills of resilience, and the Army’s Master Resilience Training Program, an intensive train-the-trainer course that provides Army senior leaders with tools to enhance mental and emotional strength.

In 2008, Breon earned a Master’s in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. Shortly after, she completed in-depth training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction at U Mass Medical with Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues. Breon’s also a graduate of Hand in Hand Parenting’s Professional’s Intensive Course.

Breon has two children under 5, who routinely test her resilience, and inspire her to keep practicing what she preaches, albeit very imperfectly!

I look so forward to supporting you on your parenting journey!
