Ann Friedman, PhD, Director of Curriculum for the Jung Center's Mind Body Spirit Institute, is a Psychologist and Certified Mindfulness Facilitator through UCLA MARC. She has also completed classes through Mindful Schools, A Still Quiet Place and .b. Through Emory University, she is a certified teacher of Cognitively Based Compassion Training® and she is trained in Non-Violent Communication. Ann trains in schools, corporations, and nonprofits and with individuals of all ages. With Mental Health America and UNICEF, she has taught mindfulness to those affected by hurricanes across Southeast Texas, Puerto Rico, and Florida.

Shawn Alex Nemeth is a talented speaker, author, coach, and entrepreneur who has dedicated his life to helping childhood trauma survivors heal and thrive. After suffering horrific abuse as a child, Nemeth threw himself into nonprofit work as an adult. Working around the world to help others heal, he spoke to audiences numbering in the thousands throughout the U.S., Europe, and South America, while his inner child suffered in silence. The silence broke in 2009, when he was hospitalized with PTSD.  He learned that the long years of trauma had been encoded in his brain and body, as happens to many survivors of abuse and neglect. With treatment, courage, and self-compassion, Nemeth began the long road to recovery and founded the Chester Street Foundation (CSF) to give traumatized children a voice. CSF aims to shine a light on childhood trauma through education and advocacy. In addition to his work with Chester Street Foundation, Nemeth shares his inspiring story with audiences large and small as a professional speaker and through his book, Thorns of Chester Street.
