We wanted to pass on the sad news that Cindy Cooper, our co-supervision lead, passed away on Wednesday 1 March 2017. She made an enormous contribution to the lives of so many people and, specifically, to the mindfulness community. She dedicated much of her later working life to the growth and development of mindfulness-based supervision, and helped shape our supervision vision. Cindy always kept very high standards, working with deep integrity as well as an enormous generosity and warmth. We will miss her very much.
