For the last decade Ditteke Ederveen-Gorman has been helping people incorporate mindfulness and meditation into their daily lives. In her twenties she was a world traveling model and actress. She modeled for designers and brands throughout Europe and the USA such as Nine and Company, Target, Sketchers, Wonder bra, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus etc.
She lived a life most young girls dreamed of, surrounded by beauty and brands that are all supposed to make you feel fantastic, living in sunny Los Angeles and surrounded by premieres and celebrity parties. But in reality, it was a superficial world, and she was nothing like the image she portrayed. She was lost. Her external glamorous superficial world and her interior empty world collided when she suddenly found herself as a single mom in Miami.
She realized she had to make a change, not only for her own sanity but also for the sake of her newborn son. She found meditation and mindfulness to help her and it worked. It worked so well she started studying mindfulness full-time for the next decade.
She earned her certification as a Reiki Master, 200-h Kundalini yoga teacher and a Radiant Child ® yoga teacher. She also took courses in Family Constellation Therapy and Conscious Discipline®.
Now living in New England with her family she devotes her entire professional life to teaching people practical ways to incorporate mindfulness into their busy daily lives.
Her motto:” You don’t have to be a monk to be mindful, anyone can do it.” She now writes, teaches, and speaks about mindfulness to adults and children throughout the United States.
