Pez Owen is a long-time student of mindfulness teacher and scholar Shinzen Young, who encouraged her to start teaching in 2009. She began as a facilitator/coach and eventually joined Shinzen as a co-teacher during retreats in Israel. In 2014, a retiring Flagstaff meditation teacher asked her to take over his weekly mindfulness group in Flagstaff, and she has been teaching there ever since. She has offered meditation workshops and corporate training at such places as College America, Northland Hospice, Coconino Community College, the MS Society, and for high school students at Ponderosa High School, as well as many individual and small groups.
In 2020, Pez completed the Unified Mindfulness Pathways training program and is now certified as a Level 2 UM trainer.
