I do not teach people to meditate, but I do teach them to practice meditation. A meditation practice may or may not bring you what you expect, but it will improve your ability to be in a more mindful place, more often. The ability to accept and acknowledge the present turns out to be a remarkably useful skill. Clarity, focus and composure increase. Stress, anxiety and self-doubt decrease. Surprisingly, this circumstance of being in touch with oneself, allows deeper and more meaningful connections with others.
I write about meditation and am looking for opportunities to bring mindfulness to others either through in-person workshops or private sessions. My meditation practice helps me accept the chaos around me in a constructive way. I hope to do the same for others.
