About Steven

Steven Inghram, M.S., C-IAYT, has studied and practiced Eastern spirituality and philosophy for over 10 years.
Over these years, Steven has developed a strong passion for ancient healing traditions and has developed a deep curiosity of the intersection of health, science, and spirituality and the exploration of mind and body through contemplative practice.
Given his personal experience with Eastern practices, he believes that when applied skillfully, these practices not only have the capacity to bring about positive change, they have the power to transform our lives in profound ways. 
Initially, Steven began mind-body practice in college due to experiencing severe anxiety and panic attacks. Ultimately, this was
the impetus for him to seek a better way of living.  
More recently, Steven has become keenly aware of how these ancient practices can benefit those living with chronic health conditions due to his own health struggles. In April of 2017, Steven was diagnosed with Primary Adrenal Insufficiency (also known as Addison's Disease) an auto-immune condition in which the adrenal glands no longer produce several key hormones that are vital to human physiology. Through this experience, Steven has recognized that advances in modern medicine have made it possible for many to function and prolong their lives but life is not just about functioning, life is about thriving which is where many of these Eastern techniques can be of great benefit. Given this, Steven firmly believes that there is a place for both modern medicine and Eastern therapeutic approaches where both can co-exist and be mutually supportive of one another. 
Professionally, Steven's mission is to guide individuals along their healing journey and to teach the integration of mind-body practices into daily life to help enhance one's overall health, well-being, and vitality.
In clinical practice, Steven works with individuals both in-person and via video conference (Zoom) and is deeply committed to providing evidence-informed care. He whole-heartedly believes that the best health outcomes are achieved when contemplative practice and modern science work in concert. 
Currently, Steven is pursing several routes of study. In August 2018, he began a 2-year non-residential lay ministry program at Bright Dawn Center for Oneness Buddhism in Coarsegold, CA and is studying the everyday spirituality approach taught by Rev. Gyomay Kubose and his son Rev. Dr. Koyo Kubose.
In Summer 2019, Steven will begin post-baccalaureate studies in pre-medicine at National University of Health Sciences near Chicago thus preparing him for the rigors of medical school and for his dream of becoming a Naturopathic Doctor. 
Beyond his clinical work and studies, Steven enjoys being outdoors in nature, loves experimenting in the kitchen, enjoys cuddling up with a good book, and volunteers with the Buddhist Association of the United States mentoring men who are incarcerated.
