Mindful : February 2018
RENDA DIONNE grew up in southern Cal- ifornia as a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. She married a Cahuilla traditional bird singer, and they now have two daughters. Family is a big focus of her life, and so is mindfulness—and bringing the two together. While studying at UCLA she discovered the practice and eventually become certified as a teacher through UCLA’s Mindfulness Awareness Research Center, where she was strongly influenced by long- time mindfulness teacher Diana Winston. She went on to be mentored by Bonnie Duran—researcher, author, and professor from the University of Washington—who is dedicated to bringing mindfulness to Indian Country. These influences led to her decision to combine mindfulness practices with her own tradition of Native American spirituality in working with the trauma within Native Ameri- can families. After graduate school at the California School of Professional Psychology, Dionne began working with two tribal consortiums. She developed culturally tailored, evidence- based parenting programs for Native American families at Riverside San Bernardino Indian Health, served as a cultural consultant for Riverside University Health Systems, and created a mindfulness program for social workers through the Riverside Department of Social Services. She has also developed a mindfulness-based curriculum for American Indian families and one for parents in the child welfare system who suffer from issues of substance abuse and domestic violence.
