Lindsey Thames, M.Ed., discovered the healing effects of meditation and mindfulness after losing her husband, Mike, to a cancer diagnosis when he was only 36 years old. Over the past ten years, Lindsey has participated in numerous mindfulness courses at Shallowford, as well as being inspired by retreats and regular contemplative practice circles facilitated by Kay and Robby through Shallowford Family Counseling Center (renamed Shallowford Center for Mindful Living in 2023). 


Lindsey and Mike’s cancer journey deepened her knowing that through mindfulness and healing circles, we are connected to each other on a deeper level, and true healing takes place. Lindsey also finds writing to be an incredible tool for healing from trauma. This inspired her to start a blog, Fight Like Mike, to share her reflections on the hard and hopeful parts of life. Lindsey continues to explore contemplative writing and reflection as a pathway to peace.
