Chung, Minnie

Minnie is a Registered Nurse and has worked in a variety of fields, including psychiatry, oncology, surgery, and ophthalmology. She came into nursing wanting to help others and found joy in doing so. In the process, she experienced and noticed compassion fatigue in many other healthcare providers. She studied bioethics to explore if she could address this issue through ethics but found the topic lacking. Later she realized that what’s missing in healthcare providers is their connection to themselves and to something Greater. Her goal, in completing the master’s degree at Seattle University, is to facilitate workshops / retreats for healthcare providers in rekindling and reconnecting with their spirituality to address compassion fatigue and their overall sense of being. She 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, received Yoga Teacher Education Certification in India, and 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training in Washington. As a volunteer, she taught English in Vietnam and Yoga for Street Yoga. She taught English as Second Language in Korea and teaches yoga at Two Dog yoga studio.
