A San Francisco native Los Angelino now Berkeleyite, Tristan Destry Saldaña (BA, MA, English Literature) has been instructing College English as an adjunct at more than ten California Community Colleges and two California State Universities. Lately, Tristan enjoys incorporating into his college reading and writing courses pro-social Happiness Practices learned from the edx MOOC “The Science of Happiness,” giving college students the opportunity to practice their academic habits of mind and critical thinking skills as they summarize and analyze articles about gratitude, altruism, compassion, empathy, forgiveness, happiness, and mindfulness. Other reading and writing themes include Food, Nature, Mind, and Environment. In addition to incorporating pro-social concepts in College English, a tireless imperative for Tristan for more than two decades has been in the area of understanding body and mind healing. Vegan for 20+ years (a decade 100% raw), Tristan has participated in a Masters program in live-food nutrition under world-leading, live-food medical doctor and spiritual nutrition expert, Gabriel Cousens.  Finally, while diet remains an ongoing exploration for healing, Tristan continues to discover the need for deeper knowledge in wellbeing and participated in a 200-hour yoga teacher training at Yoga Mountain Studio in Fairfax, CA.
