Spring Member Meeting 2020
presented by Minyee Chang, RN
Minnie Chung has been a Registered Nurse in various fields, i.e. psychiatry, oncology, surgery, pre & post anesthesia, ophthalmology since 2000. She came into nursing wanting to help others and found joy in doing so. In the process, nevertheless, she herself experienced burnout and loss of meaning. Later she realized that what’s missing in her life was her connection to herself and to something Greater than herself. Her goal, in completing a master’s degree at Seattle University, is to facilitate workshops & retreats for professionals for rekindling and reconnecting with their spirituality to address our loss of meaning and to increase our overall sense of wellbeing. Minnie Chung was born and raised in South Korea, where the teaching of Taoism and Buddhism is in the fabric of everyday lives. She also has been a devout student of Bodywork, such as Taichi and Yoga. She attended the Energy Healer program in Sedona, Arizona in 2001, received Yoga Teacher Education Certification in India in 2009, and 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training in Washington in 2012. She has taught English in Vietnam and in Korea. She also taught Yoga for Nonprofit Street Yoga and Two Dog yoga studio. She has led a spiritual retreat for the Seattle University Divinity Graduate Program in 2018, I and Thou workshops at the Holden Village in 2019.
