ABOUT RENA MELOY & RYAN KENNY:
Ryan and Rena serendipitously met in Nicaragua in 2013, where their lives were swept up in joy, disbelief, and the most vibrant love they had ever felt. Sure, the warm beaches, brilliant blue water, and endless sunshine played a role….but beneath all of the laughter and waves was their shared passion for meditation.
They had both been practicing meditation for years, and their compasses were set for a lifelong exploration of living with presence and intention. Little did they know this path would guide them to each other and align them in a vocation of teaching meditation within their own community and with communities across the world.
As business and life partners, Ryan and Rena are continually humbled by the impact meditation has on their lives and the lives of everyone it touches. This is an extremely challenging time, and also a hopeful one. Ryan and Rena find great promise in this new wave of mindful exploration, and they are deeply honored to be part of it.
