Mindfulness NOW Episode 2 Resistance Talk with Amanda Quintana

Hello amazing person!!!

In this episode I interview Amanda Quintana. She’s a former student of mine (college student leader…see her bio below).

Within this episode we talk about resistance, how it appears in our lives and what to do about it. I mention the book, Spiritual Direction: Beyond the Beginnings by Janet K. Ruffing, R.S.M. and one of the author’s perspectives regarding resistance (that it’s God’s grace needing to be worked within the individual).

Amanda Quintana is a Prevention Specialist at the Mid-Hudson Prevention Resource Center located at the Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Council of Orange County. She works to enhance community-based prevention strategies regarding substance misuse and abuse throughout the Mid-Hudson region. Amanda graduated with her Associate’s Degree from SUNY Orange in 2014 and was awarded the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Success for her dedication and integration of academic success with extra-curricular leadership opportunities. She went on to graduate with her Bachelor’s Degree, magna cum laude, in Psychology from The College of Saint Rose, where she was a Resident Assistant and continued her dedication to improving student life. In present day, when she isn’t wandering the Mid-Hudson region, Amanda enjoys spending her time with her nose in a book soaking up the sun or crafting the newest Do-It-Yourself Pinterest find. She is currently considering Master’s Programs to further her education and career. You can reach her through her LinkedIn profile at linkedin.com/in/a-quintana.
