    Balanced Mind Meditation Center LogoLife is busy. Crazy busy. No one understands this better than Julie Potiker whose life had become so stressful she started having serious medical issues and was sure she had a brain tumor. After a battery of medical tests, her neurologist recommended she try mindful meditation. This began Julie’s transformative journey to becoming a master practitioner and instructor of the healing art of meditation. After years of training and working with clients, she founded the Balanced Mind Meditation Center, a non-religious drop-in meditation studio on the Jacobs Family Campus of the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center. At the BMMC people learn simple techniques to enrich their lives. In addition to drop-in meditation, the center offers a robust selection of the best evidence-based classes being taught in the United States today. As a trained Mindful Self-Compassion teacher and longtime practitioner of mindful meditation, Julie Potiker has an elegant synthesis of many teachings, which she brings together in her unique program called Mindful Methods for Life.JCC logo

    The Balanced Mind Meditation Center was created in memory of Julie’s mother, the late Ruth Jacobowitz, a passionate women’s health advocate, author, and lecturer. Her father Paul Jacobowitz came up with the idea of creating the center in honor of Ruth’s lifetime of commitment to the betterment of humanity. Julie and her father are proud that Ruth’s lifetime of commitment to the betterment of humanity will live on through the center.

    Julie was trained in the first cohort of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teachers trained by Kristin Neff, Christopher Germer, and the University of California, San Diego Center for Mindfulness. She earned her Bachelor of General Studies from the University of Michigan and Juris Doctor from George Washington University Law School.
