Kelly Petrie

Founder & Contemplative Educator

As an independent contemplative educator in the Oregon community since 2011, it has been a dream of Kelly's to open a space that is solely devoted to the cultivation of insight, awareness & compassion through a wide range of contemplative practices that serve people of all ages, abilities & identities. 

Kelly has over 20 years of experience educating adults & children of all ages & diverse needs. She holds an MA degree in contemplative education from Naropa University where her specialty in contemplative-based pedagogy stems. She received extensive training in how to teach mindfulness to children & teens from internationally recognized youth mindfulness pioneers,  Susan Kaiser Greenland and Dr. Patricia Broderick. Kelly is a 500-hour Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher. She is a practice leader with the Tergar International meditation community. Kelly’s longtime personal practice in meditation, yoga & contemplative arts serves as the inspirational ground for her teaching. 

Kelly is thrilled to share the space with skilled teachers & professionals who have their own unique gifts to offer the Maitri Center community. 

Kelly's pronouns are she, her, hers.
