In that time, she has created mandalas and labyrinths with more than 2,000 individuals of all ages. Quinn is a certified labyrinth facilitator. She teaches Spanish and critical theory at Western.

Adam Chacksfield is a nondual teacher and coach and serves as the president of The Center for Nondual Awareness. At the age of 33, he left his job as a faculty member at WIU to devote himself to spiritual opening in community with others. Five years later, with the support and guidance of Peter Fenner, a pioneer in nondual psychology, Chacksfield began to publicly offer nondual teaching and coaching. He now facilitates people falling open to the liberating truth, by supporting the release of burdening beliefs and holding patterns in the body. He currently offers a four-month online course called, "Falling Open," The Macomb Nondual Dialogue Group, two Macomb meditation groups and works with individuals providing nondual transformation coaching and meditation coaching. He also regularly offers retreats and workshops in regional cities and on the west coast. More information is available at www.nondualcenter.org/adam-chacksfield.
