About Tricia (aka "Zirit")
Tricia Danner Schuster (aka Zirit) is a conscious healing meditation guide, registered nurse, plant medicine advocate, author, and Founder of Stillness School. "Zirit" (which means zany+spirit) was a channeling that awakened her out of a sound sleep on March 2nd, 2011 and revealed itself to her as a way of "creating world peace through inner peace one mindful moment at a time". Tricia is Creator of HUMANS HEALING HUMANS (community-based meditation and conversation), THE ZOCK (meditation tool), and THE STILLNESS SERIES (3-book collection). Conscious Healing Meditation is the practice of paying attention to the subtle sensations of the body, moment-to-moment, as a way to activate our innate human capacity for self-healing; which can ultimately lead to collective healing.
Tricia has worked with various groups and organizations – including schools, attorneys, bank executives, and hospital staff – helping them to implement daily mindfulness and meditation practices. She's been a registered nurse with the Florida Board of Nursing since 1996; specializing in hospice/palliative nursing and is currently a member of the American Cannabis Nurses Association. Throughout her employment at Tampa General Hospital she developed multiple hospital-wide programs including the Bereavement Program (2003), the Palliative Care Consultation Team (2005), and the Meaningful Conversations: Advance Care Planning Program (2016). She has been a meditation practitioner since 1999 and a Yoga Alliance registered yoga instructor since 2012 . Tricia has done extensive study in the fields of mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and plant/energy medicine. Her teachings are wise and insightful - as well as playful and light - and her mantra for life is "NOT PERFECT, JUST PRESENT".
