Amy Pattee Colvin first discovered compassion meditation and qigong in the early-1990s. Within this meditation style, which blends Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism, she learned how to integrate stillness with the natural movement of internal energy (qi) as an effective method for transforming physical, mental, and emotional challenges.

These tools and techniques helped her move through various life challenges, including navigating difficult relationships, finding peace amid the pressure of starting a home-based business, and overcoming health challenges.

Looking for ways to share this type of meditation in a format that harmonized with her facilitation style, Amy became a certified teacher of Stanford University's Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT). By combining her years of personal practice with the CCT program elements, she shares her knowledge in a variety of ways.

She leads international spiritual tours, which provide opportunities to explore fascinating parts of the world. On these tours, you’ll connect with the wisdom and energy of ancient sacred sites and raw landscapes. You’ll also deepen your own connection with your spiritual self. Her approach to spirituality is non-denominational and universal rather than religious. No matter the destination, each journey illuminates the idea that although every human is unique, we are all united by a desire to live a peaceful and joy-filled life.

Amy is also developing a new program called BodyMind Intellisense. This program, a combination of self-study and group coaching, teaches both qigong and compassion meditation with an emphasis on offering interactive techniques and tools to help you cultivate acceptance and compassion for yourself and others.

Amy is also the author of the Amazon Bestseller, "Cultivating Compassion: Simple Everyday Practices for Discovering Peace of Mind and Resilience," and is a popular teacher on the meditation app Insight Timer.
