Bio

A San Francisco native Los Angelino, former Berkeleyite and now Marinite, Tristan (MA, AMFT) has been instructing College English as an adjunct at more than ten California Community Colleges and two California State Universities. He has just earned his MA (2019) in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute in Berkeley. He 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. He has also participated in an MA program in live-food nutrition under world-leading, live-food medical doctor and spiritual nutrition expert, Gabriel Cousens.  He 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.  He enjoys being in nature, playing drums, and writing poetry.
