Amy Edelstein

Educator / Author / Public Speaker

Amy Edelstein, educator, author, and public speaker is a powerful communicator of ideas and beliefs that can help us transform ourselves and the culture we live in. In 2014, Amy founded the Inner Strength Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports over 2000 inner-city teens with mindfulness and cultural development. Based on her 35-years experience with contemplative practice and developmental philosophy, this program uniquely incorporates mindfulness stress reduction with adolescent neuroscience and cultural development so students learn tools to see their experience in a broader context.

Amy also teaches meditation and transformative philosophy to adults in both professional development programs and retreat settings. She is cofounder of Emergence Education and its publishing arm Emergence Education Press, and is author of four books.
