I've been helping people reduce stress since 2001. I am the founder of TSD Mindfulness, a virtual meditation center. TSD Mindfulness offers training and certification programs to therapists and life coaches for stress reduction. I have been facilitating meditation workshops to a global audience for 20 years, certifying therapists, teachers, and healthcare workers to teach mediation and mindfulness. Candidates learn assessment, analysis, psycho-spiritual education, and mindfulness protocols.
I have written four books on the topic of meditation and anxiety. I also founded Satya International, a certification program for people teaching meditation to children. I have closed Satya International to focus on my coaching and virtual meditation center. However, you can view free online content about teaching meditation to children at SarahWood.com.
I have been formally trained in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (CPI), Vipassana Buddhist practice, Hawaiian Huna practice, hypnotherapy, guided imagery, and past-life regression. I have taught in the public school system, as well as, worked in psychiatric treatment.

The TSD Resilience Inventory helps you assess your clients’ areas of resilience. With this data, you can identify which mindfulness exercises, coping skills, and affirmations will most effectively build your client’s resilience and decrease their anxiety quickly. TSD Mindfulness shows us how to trace each instance of anxiety back to one or more specific areas of resilience. Once traced, anxiety is immediately reduced by building resilience in the area where the stress originated. Each area of resilience aligns with a different psycho/emotional/physical system.

Sarah Vallely's compelling memoir of self-discovery. The story begins with a childhood spent in Hindu ashrams, Christian communes, and Greyhound buses that crisscross the United States, then moves through a college experience that culminates in a drunken plunge from a dormitory window ledge. Attention deficit disorder is at the heart of the memoir, and the book raises important questions about the effects of untreated ADHD. It shows the ways meditation and prayer change this disorder's physiological causes while investigating whether having ADHD makes it difficult to meditate and pray.
