Live Deliberately.

A Life Fully Embraced Begins From Within.

From Within Wellness offers practical, pragmatic self-help that actually works.
MBSR – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Des Moines, Iowa


My vision is to create a more mindful community by developing practical life skills in attentional strength, present moment awareness, and self-compassion. I help people discover and cultivate their own inner resources to build greater stress resiliency.

“I can’t thank you enough for the mindfulness 8-week session I attended. I had previously read one book about mindfulness on the recommendation of a professional in spiritual direction. I got the general idea of mindfulness from the book, but nowhere near the more comprehensive instruction I got from your course. So, thanks again for everything.”   – B.H. (Fall 2017 MBSR graduate)


“I just finished the 8-week MBSR class with Allison. She is such a good teacher. She presents the material in such a clear fashion. I was so impressed with her ability to handle very difficult topics and questions in such a mindful way. She really created a great space for participants to share their personal journeys. The worst part about the class is that it’s over!”  – C.W. (Fall 2017 MBSR graduate)
