Who is training your team? How have they been trained? How are they continually pushing their own practice and limits?

At NorthScale, all of our trainers have advanced degrees, are trained therapists, and have extensive zen meditation training (a minimum of 10 consecutive years of intensive practice, under the guidance of a highly respected teacher, or Sensei). This is our work, our practice, and our life. We are committed to it, and to you.

Kirstin Broderick has practiced Zen meditation for over 20 years.

She has a Masters in Strategic Management & Economic Development (Harvard) and is a licensed therapist (LMSW, Fordham). She has worked with organizations from The World Bank, to fast-growing tech companies, VC firms, and even vegan food trucks. 

Kirstin completed her first intensive three-day silent meditation training in rural Japan in 1998. In 2004 she became a student of Roshi Janet Jiryu Abels of Still Mind Zendo in NYC. Kirstin received Jukai – or Zen Ordination – in 2012, and was given the dharma name Daikatsu, translated as Great Liveliness, or Big Life.
