Meditation is central to what I teach. It is the first thing I do in the morning to set my day and then repeated sometimes at noon and always before dinner to refresh and settle my energetic body. I believe meditation is the most important practice we can do to maintain our health and live a vibrant life. I am passionate about sharing this wonderful practice of meditation with whomever feels the need to find stillness, beauty and love in their lives. Please email or call if you want to learn how to meditate.
I have been meditating regularly for over 40 years. I have learned that meditation is both easy and elusive at times. I found in my early practice that having a “coach” was extremely helpful in learning how to consistently enter the meditative state. The nuances and subtleties of how we “go inside” and “let go” of expectations and control in order to enjoy meditation can sometimes cause us to create our own road blocks. I can be very helpful in coaching both new and seasoned mediators to help them in their practice.
At the same time I was meditating twice a day, until 2009, I drank a lot of alcohol every day. I was what is known as a functional alcoholic…until I became dysfunctional and spent a month in Passages rehab center. Since then I have learned that to quit drugs and alcohol is not enough to enjoy life as fully as we can. I learned from my teacher Tommy Rosen and his Recovery 2.0 program that it is possible to thrive in Recovery if we are able to re-establish ourselves in our True Nature. Nikki Myers, the founder of Yoga of 12 Step Recovery, calls the underlying problem Co-dependency or the Disease of the Lost Self. We all have this disease and the only way to get “cured” is to rediscover our true Self (Soul or Spirit or simply pure Awareness and Stillness). Meditation is a direct connection to Self and I can help people in Recovery to rediscover their true nature, connect to it, and be free of this disease.
