LindsayPicCroppedLindsay Dye, Administrator
Lindsay Dye brings to her position a background of varied experience in planning, organizational and management skills. She has worked in marketing and advertising, hospitality, management training, human resources, conference planning and private criminal investigation. As the mother of a partially home-schooled teenager, she’s uniquely qualified to juggle the diverse and sometimes challenging aspects of the administration of the Hakomi Institute of California. Lindsay came to Santa Cruz 28 years ago to recover from a bicycle accident, and never left, willingly falling victim to the lull of the ocean and the solace of the mountains there. She has subsequently enjoyed being nourished and nurtured by both the area and the wonderful friends she's made, and considers Santa Cruz the perfect "village" in which to raise her son.

AdeleAdele Gotlib, Bookkeeper
Adele lives to nitpick. She also lives for praise. This combination of personality traits makes her extremely well suited for her job as Hakomi's bookkeeper and sometime proofreader. In addition to bookkeeping experience, Adele has over 25 years' experience as a typist-proofreader-copy editor, and has spent nearly as many years being unemployed, for which she is also very well suited. When not doing nothing, Adele enjoys spending her free time gardening, looking at birds and bugs, and playing the piano. You can reach Adele at hicabooks@gmail.com
