Kirstin Broderick has practiced Zen meditation for 18 years.

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

She 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.
