Mei Elliott has been practicing meditation since 2004. In 2014, Mei entered into residential monastic training at Tassajara Zen Center and has since spent nearly five years training as a monk at San Francisco Zen Center temples. During her time at Tassajara, Mei facilitated the Cultural Awareness and Inclusivity Committee and received lay ordination from her teacher, Shinchi Linda Galijan.

Mei continues as a resident at San Francisco Zen Center where she is a certified Right Use of Power teacher and facilitates Young Urban Zen, a sangha for people in their 20s and 30s. Mei is a mentor for the Spirit Rock Family Program as well as Inward Bound Mindfulness Education. When not immersed in formal Zen practice, Mei sits Vipassana retreats and studies the relationship between chronic pain and practice.
