Liz Munns is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and UM Lead Coach in private practice located in Topeka, Kansas. She specializes in the treatment of chronic pain, trauma, anxiety, and chronic stress. Liz teaches embodied mindfulness skills and practices in order to facilitate healthy nervous system balance and enhanced self-awareness.
Liz also treats people who have experienced adverse reactions to meditation. This became a passion of hers after experiencing her own adverse reaction during a meditation retreat in 2010. Not knowing where to turn for help after this experience, a colleague suggested reaching out to Shinzen Young. His guidance and support started Liz out on her healing path and introduced her to Shinzen’s system of meditation, eventually leading her to become a coach in the UM system. Guided by her own journey, coupled with her professional experience, Liz brings her embodied mindfulness teaching skills to help meditators in distress.
