ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: My name is Mini Mukherjee and I'm an OC newbie looking to bring together cool creative folks in the area. I have a background building and working for startups, and now I write uplifting and motivational short stories for entrepreneurship sites as well as on my website. With a Hindu upbringing and a longtime practicing Siddha Yogi, I have been meditating since I was a child. Meditation has most recently helped me stay focused and push past a lot of self-doubt as a writer. When I couldn't find a group pairing meditation and writers in the OC area, I decided to start The Mindful Artist to help and connect with others. Please join me for the inaugural meeting!
