About the Founder 

Olga Restrepo 
I was born in Medellin, Colombia. I have lived in different countries throughout my life. Traveler, nature lover, always searching for new answers... I feel a deep love for teaching, as it is a reciprocal learning process. I like to enjoy the simple things, and to serve people.

My background is in business and consulting. I did my university studies in advertising, and then I did an MBA in management with an emphasis on international business. Throughout my professional life I have taught in small companies, multinationals and postgraduate courses, in each case mindfulness has been a fundamental tool of guidance.  Currently I dedicate my time to teaching workshops through the digital platform Sendero Mindful oriented towards women, seeking to sow in the groups and at an individual level the seeds of full attention, awareness, self-esteem and a kind connection with everything that surrounds us.

I have made mindfulness a central part of my education. I have made several retreats of mindfulness, silence and academic training activities in different parts of the world. As part of the training I have had during this time, in October 2018 I was able to realize one of the dreams I had: to be with H.H Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India. For a week I participated in the teachings that He personally dictates. This opportunity increased my commitment to create this space, through which I seek a little more every day to make his phrase come true:

“Let your heart open your mind.”
