Mindful Self-Care for Skillful Living


Erin McCarthy, Ph.D.

is a professor,  speaker, author and mindfulness teacher. After completing her  undergraduate degree in French and Philosophy at Trent University, she  went on to complete a Ph.D. at the University of Ottawa, comparing western and eastern views of the self. A professor of philosophy at St.  Lawrence University in Canton, NY since 2000, Erin now divides her time between her work as a scholar-teacher at the university, conference engagements and her mindfulness teaching both on her campus and in the  Ottawa area. Her teaching and writing bring together eastern and western philosophies and practices to cultivate human flourishing, joy, and ease.

A long time meditator, Erin came to teach mindful  self-compassion and mindfulness through her interest in and scholarship  on Contemplative Education. She has a particular passion for how mindfulness modalities help in education, parenting and with issues of social justice.

An educator for over two decades, she’s worked with kids, youth and adults to help them find the inner space to live a life of flourishing and is continually inspired by the transformations that  these mindfulness modalities afford their practitioners…herself included!
