About Pablo Das
I was empowered as a Dharma teacher at Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society (ATS) in 2009. I was a member of the founding teachers council at ATS and taught there until 2016. I am a practitioner of Somatic Experiencing (sep), a body centered system for the management and resolution of trauma and am currently assisting professional trainings. I was on the founding treatment team at Refuge Recovery, a Buddhist, trauma informed outpatient treatment program for drug and alcohol Addiction. I trained as a holistic health coach (hhc) at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and studied Food therapy under Annemarie Colbin at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City. I maintain a private coaching practice working with clients one on one, integrating Buddhist practice and principle, trauma resolution and holistic health models. I studied council practice at the Ojai foundation and teach classes on interpersonal mindfulness and authentic self expression. I have taught mindfulness retreats for teens. I worked in suicide prevention for the LGBTQ teen population and teach workshops for the LGBTQ community. I am an indie-folk (antifolk) musician and performer. I live and work in Los Angeles. My writing has been published nationally.
