My Approach to Meditation

What I enjoy about teaching meditation, is making it really accessible, simple, and enjoyable, making it convenient to include as part of your everyday life.

I know meditation can be intimidating and the common (misguided) belief that meditation requires “clearing one’s mind of all thoughts” can feel like an impossible task.(because it is!).  The thought of taking on this impossible task makes people feel like they are “doing it wrong” or simply can’t do it at all, making people give up easily.

I frequently get feedback from both beginners as well as more experienced meditators, that they feel more ‘successful’ at meditation, when experiencing guided meditation with me.  In addition to formal practice, I specialize in helping my clients find ways to incorporate meditation into their daily lives (also known as mindfulness), in order to travel life’s journey with ease and grace.

Remember, just like its difficult to achieve an 8 pack from one time of exercising, it is similarly important to have regular meditation practice to achieve the benefits that meditation brings. Let me help you!
