“It all begins with awareness”
Awareness, awareness, awareness…
The main reason most people suffer with stress is because they don’t have the right tools to address it.
Many of us are struggling with feelings of:
feeling out of balance
experiencing restless sleep
searching for deeper fulfillment that rarely seems to come
We all have our own unique reasons for wanting to learn how to meditate. I wanted to learn to meditate because I desired more peace. I wanted to establish what Wayne Dyer taught me, “conscious contact with the “Great Mystery” through connecting to the silence that rests within. But that’s just me – different people come to the practice of meditation for different reasons - to relax physically and mentally, to let go of the need to control outcomes, to accept life on it's own terms, to be feel more "alive", "present" and connected to life and to each other. Some people are attracted to meditation seeking contact with other realms of consciousness.
Maybe you are attracted to meditation because you heard it may help you sleep better, lower your blood pressure, breathe more easily, boost your immune system, ease some pain both emotional and physical.
Meditation can help us achieve all of the above – but slowly. It takes courage and discipline. The physical, emotional, and spiritual value of a ritualized meditation practice has been well documented for thousands of years. Now science has confirmed that in less than eight weeks you will change the actual structure of your brain.
Meditation helps us establish ourselves more fully in the present moment and slows down the fluctuations of our minds. And since everything that happens to us happens in the present moment, it’s a good idea to cultivate our ability to be able to become aware of the present moment – the power moment - and witness it before we perform action.
I will teach you how to cultivate your ability to witness the present moment.

So What's Your Reason?
We all have our own unique reasons for wanting to learn how to meditate. I wanted to learn to meditate because I desired more peace. I wanted to establish what Wayne Dyer taught me, “conscious contact with the “Great Mystery” through connecting to the silence that rests within.
But that’s just me – maybe you just want to slow down the onslaught of thoughts, become more present and stop living in the past or the future, or maybe you just received news that someone you love has been diagnosed with a life threatening diagnosis and you are overwhelmed with fear based thoughts and emotions. Or, maybe YOU are the person facing a life challenging diagnosis and find you are scaring yourself with every thought you think.
Whatever is your personal story, let's practice. See the ways together we can connect.
