EDEN KOZ (Kozlowski), FOUNDER OF JUST BE
Simply put… I am a strong woman with a passion for meditation/mindfulness and helping people really to connect to everything around them… their life, work, family and community. And, I have a desire to create a tribe full of like-minded warriors bent on living with heart, calmness and authenticity.
Quickie: I was raised to be polite in a tiny Georgia college town. Got my degree at the Univ of Georgia and began a career on the account side of the ad industry in Atlanta. Always more creatively bent (or maybe just bent), I returned to design school and eventually became a VP and Creative Director.
I loved that 15 year stint in the world of Mad Men but was becoming completely overworked and stressed out. I went on a intense search to find balance. My saving grace started with Dr. Neala Peak, clinical psychologist turned meditation teacher/author, and thankfully began a process that would radically change myself and everything I thought I knew.
After studying with Dr. Peake for six years, she gave me a gentle push inviting me to leave my career and teach meditation. I founded Just Be in 2006 which is currently based in Akron, OH.
I also love to speak/present and always with the intention to give my clients/companies an unexpected wham pow. More… I’ve had two brain surgeries and almost died twice via rare infectious disease in 2016 which really enhanced my depth. And on a lighter note (ha but true), I am a Reiki Master and a continual student of everything scientific around what I do as well as general energy, mind, body and spirit. Oh, yeah, I was also a certified exercise instructor, almost black belt in martial arts, I am a wife, a mom of two crazy girls (one with special needs), I have a dog and a cat, love organic veggies and awesome, greasy fries.
Oh, I do enjoy writing. I compose for the HuffPost. You can also find my work on StackStreet, Care2, Soulseeds and The Waking Times. I am in the midst of writing my first book about the spirituality of my infectious disease experience.
To sum it up… I am a strong, meditation momma looking to enhance the world. Join the fun with me and the gang at Just Be.
