Dawn A. Grimes, DDS is the owner and sole practitioner of a thriving dental practice in Michigan.

After hitting a wall of personal and professional burnout, she met her teacher, davidji, and started a regular meditation practice. She was amazed at the level of personal change that came from meditating and employing simple mindfulness techniques throughout the day. Everything in her life changed for the better.

Since then, Dawn has immersed herself in the study of meditation, mindfulness, emotional intelligence and communication skills. She has completed a 520 hour accredited advanced meditation teacher certification program and continues to study the subject matter in depth and with enthusiasm. She has studied under many current master teachers.

Dawn has a B.S. in Philosophy, as well as her D.D.S., from the University of Detroit Mercy. She is certified in Wellness Counseling and The Psychology of Leadership from Cornell University, and has completed Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence Training Program.

As an Advanced Certified Teacher, she believes that meditation practice has to be comfortable and fit the life of the individual.
