Janice Houlihan, M.Ed.Co-Founder, Inner Explorer
Janice is a Co-Founder of Inner Explorer. She came to know mindful awareness through her lifelong (since age 6) friend, Laura Bakosh. Having started a mindful practice as an adult, she thought “If I had only had this when I was younger”! With the benefits of her individual practice and her lifelong friend beside her, she began the journey to bring peace to the world, starting with children. Through these practices, she has seen children transform, from anxious to calm, from angry to peaceful, from struggling to aspiring. She knows they are on the right path. Janice has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Northeastern University and has a Master‘s Degree in Education from the University of Massachusetts- Boston. She been trained in MBSR and has been teaching mindful awareness practices to adults and children since 2009 She is a lifelong bay state resident and likes to travel with her family. She feels that seeking out new places and knowledge goes hand in hand. She is constantly uplifted by her husband John and her son Jake and stepsons Jeremy and Brenden, and there is also Cooper, her crazy little dog. She was once told that she sees life through rose colored glasses….and she thought, isn’t that the best way to see life?
