Since 2012 I’ve taught thousands of students at InsightLA in classes from our award winning Essentials of Mindfulness program to developing original curriculum for traditional Buddhist Dharma teachings, and specialty classes.

Retreats | Events | Workshops

I offer daylong and residential meditation retreats, pop-up mindfulness workshops and events, and workspace programs for companies and organizations and throughout the greater Los Angeles area as well as internationally.

Inquire for information and availability. I offer sessions in person in Santa Monica at Elysia Life Care and internationally online.


Corporate and Organizational Mindfulness

Mindfulness in the workplace has been proven to be on the cutting edge of reducing healthcare costs. Studies show an increase in overall employee well being, stress reduction and increased focus in the workplace leading to greater productivity and satisfaction. 

I design and offer custom programs to suit your company or organization's needs in ways that are relevant, accessible, and engaging. Topics include mindful communication, conflict resolution, stress reduction, fostering well being, and cultivating clarity and focus.


Organizations + Companies I've Worked With:


Celeste is an amazing meditation teacher!  We are so grateful that she has been able to teach meditation at Alexandria House, a transitional residence for women and children. The residents have loved her presence and wisdom.  She has taught them real world skills so that they can bring some needed calm into their often challenging lives. 
— Yanti P., Alexandria House, Board Member & Support Group Organizer
One on one sessions with Celeste have been crucial to my personal growth this last year. Celeste has supported me tremendously in my practice, and I am forever grateful for her insight, wisdom and compassion
— Alexandra B., Private Student
Thank you for a great morning! It totally changed the tenor of the workday, everyone really enjoyed it.

I have been meditating for 30 years and found that
working with Celeste privately has enhanced my clarity and peace of mind. I have been able to access a deeper level of peace and insight.
She has a light and calmness about her which is deeply healing.
— Richard R., Founding Director of Promises and Mack Sennett Studios, Los Angeles
I enjoyed both Celeste’s class and her as a teacher; the seeming ease with which she taught, the apparent pleasure she seemed to take in teaching and of course, the obvious love she has for what she teaches.
