More about me

I help leaders find their own ways of integration--of their deep spiritual intentions and the situations in their professional and personal life. We’re spiritual warriors, facing the challenges that we have been prepared for. By supporting your empowerment, creativity, and resourcefulness, and bringing forth feminine leadership qualities for both women and men, I can help you find a greater flourishing than you may have thought possible.


Ying is currently a lecturer at Stanford, and until recently was design director for international markets at LinkedIn. The class she teaches at Stanford is called Designing for Well-being, using design-thinking and the creative process to help students realize that their inner challenges are creative material for what they want to bring forth in the world. Ying has a practice of integrating deep spiritual practice with our complex modern life—drawing from Zen Buddhism as well as the Native American path, Ying supports others on their journey of inner and outer transformation by shifting consciousness to deeper and deeper levels. Her favorite quote is by Einstein: “No problem can be solved with the same level of consciousness that created it.” When we look at today's world, we may frequently feel powerless in the face of seemingly countless and complex problems. However, we can learn to see from the heart, rather than the mind. The mind labels see limitations and problems. The heart is that deeper level of consciousness, where problems look completely different and become dynamic, creative challenges that infuse you with energy. Ying’s top values are: Freedom, Wisdom, Skillful Means, Expansiveness, and Nature. Nature is her primary teacher, with its qualities of being generative and emergent. Freedom is the highest value to her, and it’s not freedom from the difficulties and pain in our lives, but rather the freedom to—to embrace this life, this moment, the work we’re here to do. Her mission is to remove internal barriers so that people can be anything they want to be. Ying grew up in China, and leads experiential education for American students in southwest China for a pioneering company called Where There Be Dragons. She facilitates and speaks frequently on the themes of cross-cultural communication, designer's mindset, and integration. She’s mother to a wonderful toddler, and is currently at work on a book about integration for Shambhala Publications.
