Malou Dusyn
Menla Holistic Health Founder

Holistic Counseling, Energy Therapy, Feng Shui and ONDAMED

Malou is a Psycho-Spiritual Counselor and Energy Medicine Therapist with a special emphasis in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Counseling. Her healing approach helps people transform long-held, negative belief patterns in order to release the cycle of emotional pain and disease. Malou also offers ONDAMED — pulsed electromagnetic field therapy that helps to radically transform diseases, illnesses, injuries and emotional trauma.

Malou’s contemplative, holistic approach to counseling and healing is rooted in a personal, lifelong practice of Tibetan Buddhism and mindfulness meditation. She is a Lay Buddhist Minister and a Certified Pastoral Counselor. Malou is a student of Tibetan, Indian and Chinese philosophy for many years, and has studied Buddhist Science of Mind with great masters from Tibet for over 30 years. As a result, her work is a synthesis of eastern, western, and contemporary approaches to personal and spiritual development.

Malou is the founder and executive director of the Menla Holistic Health Center in Hartford, Connecticut. She is also the co-director and co-founder of Hartford Karma Thegsum Choling Meditation and Study Center, an affiliate of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery and Retreat Center, and founder and spiritual director of the non-profit Tara Shedrup Dharma Center. Both centers support people in pursuing the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism and Buddhist meditation. Through Tara Shedrup, Malou is also founder and executive director of the Hartford Mindfulness Center, a secular community organization dedicated to enriching the lives of people through mindfulness teachings and the healing arts. Finally, Malou serves on the board of the Connecticut Center for Interreligious Understanding.
