Meditation: Private Sessions & Classes

The word “meditation” means so many things to different people.

In it’s most basic definition, to meditate means to consciously choose to sit with yourself and just BE rather than doing and thinking.

Recent scientific studies show that the practice of meditation changes the brain in wonderful ways affecting ability to have greater balance, more focus, increased compassion, less anxiety, improved well-being.

I explain to my students that the most important part is to approach your meditation with a lot of reverence and deep respect for all of Nature – Nature within and Nature all around you everywhere. This sets the mind and invites an integration of your spirit/essence to come together with mind and body in the present moment.

As I practice and teach it, meditation is not intellectual contemplation rather entering into a state of surrender to what IS and simply allowing, gently observing and just being. This practice observed regularly helps us to RESPOND calmly rather than REACT when tough stuff arises in daily life.

Mindfulness and meditation are something you can do anywhere once you establish your own practice. I teach meditation in a way that is practical. A regular practice can help you discover what it’s like to see the world you actually have, not the one you think you are missing, and to live the life that is yours to live in its fullness, moment by moment and day by day.

Mindfulness & Seated Meditation (see dates below)

My Sunday afternoon class provides an opportunity to discuss, learn and practice mindfulness with seated meditation. These classes are introductory for newbies but also a wonderful opportunity for regular meditators to come and sit in order to reap the benefits of a community meditation gathering. Meditation in this class is still and silent – usually two 15-20 minute meditations with discussion in between. When I teach people about meditation, I first provide a foundation to the simple but profound practice which can bring lasting change to your perspective and to your life. Advance registration is required due to limited seating.  Donations are requested in the amount of $20 but if you are unable to donate $20 please donate what you feel you can afford.
