Devon Hase began intensive meditation training in 2001. After spending nearly a decade as a classroom teacher of high school and community college students, she entered a two-year period of retreat. Following this, Devon was invited by Joseph Goldstein and DaRa Williams to be a part of the IMS teacher training cohort, an honor she gratefully accepted. Currently, Devon coaches meditators on the 10% Happier app, assists retreats at IMS and Spirit Rock, and leads mindfulness and meditation retreats with her husband Craig.
Craig Hase began intensive meditation training in 1994. He lived at a Zen monastery for six years before entering a PhD program in counseling psychology at UW-Madison, where he had the good fortune to be influenced by renowned neuroscientist Richie Davidson, contemplative scholar John Dunne, and other luminaries. He has designed mindfulness-based curricula for hospitals and schools, teaches meditation on the online app Simple Habit, and leads mindfulness and meditation retreats with his wife Devon in the United States and Europe.
Since attending Amherst College, Lizzy Hoke has built a career helping non-profits and values-based businesses become more efficient and heart-centered communities. She is a long-term meditator and psyched to be the Director of Operations at SATI.
