Margot Iseman is an adjunct professor at Naropa University where she has taught in the Early Childhood Education program, the graduate Transpersonal Psychology Program, the Traditional Eastern Arts program, as well as the BA Contemplative Psychology program. She is a body-centered psychotherapist and a drug and alcohol counselor.
Margot is also an avid dancer, who taught dance in the Boulder community for years before receiving her degree in Dance Therapy at Naropa University. As part of her master's program, she also studied and received a certificate as a body-mind centering practitioner, which is a core element of her approach to body-mind psychotherapy as a teacher and therapist. The psychology of the body-mind deeply impacts the way she teaches meditation classes as well. She has been associated with Naropa University since the summer of 1975, when she became a student of Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. She has been a devoted student and practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism since that time.
