Hi! I’m Caroline Welch. Welcome to my website.
I hope you that you will find what you are looking for, and perhaps even some ideas and practices you didn’t know you were seeking.
I’ve spent the last 12 years learning about and promoting healthy minds and well-being as CEO and Co-founder, with Dr. Dan Siegel, of the Mindsight Institute in Santa Monica, California. Our mission is to bring more kindness, compassion and resilience into the world. My first book, The Gift of Presence: A Mindfulness Guide for Women, is now available.
Like many of you, I’ve worn (and wear) many hats both professionally and personally. I’ve been a bank teller, waitress, English teacher in Japan, corporate litigator, court-appointed mediator, and in-house counsel at two studios here in Los Angeles. Between graduate school and law school, I spent a year and a half backpacking around the world, through 26 different countries with my college girlfriend. I love traveling but get motion sickness on just about anything moving that I’m not driving.
I’ve raised two children with my husband, Dan, and was fortunate enough to be caregiver for my dad in his last few months on earth. In hindsight, the dots in my life’s pathway are starting to make some sense, but it certainly didn’t feel that way along much of the journey.
