I fell in love with Pilsen – the food, art, and the people. I moved here 16 years ago and continue the love affair.


My name is Dianna Stencel, the owner of Breathing Space Chicago. I am an experienced mindfulness-based stress reduction teacher who has been bringing mindfulness for well-being programs to a local university since 2002. Then, I began teaching mindfulness on research projects at another university in my spare time. Now I am offering these courses to the general public in the heart of the city in the community where I have lived for the past 16 years! Taking a brief break from teaching as I teach on two studies to see how mindfulness might help people with chronic illnesses.
