Meditation is the art of silencing the mind. When the mind is silent, concentration is increased and we experience inner peace in the midst of worldly turmoil. This elusive inner peace is what attracts so many people to meditation and is a quality everyone can benefit from, and YES you can still be ambitious and goal-striving!
Talking about meditation is the easy part; actually creating the space in your day requires a bit of planning. However, when in need of a push to get started (or continue) with your meditation practice, understanding the array of physical, mental, and emotional benefits can be a convincing reminder of why meditation is important. Once you learn how to meditate and make it a daily habit, you will experience the benefits for yourself; you will wonder how you ever existed without your daily ritual of relaxation!
I personally practice daily, and could not imagine my life without it! I am passionate about teaching meditation and am trained in many forms of teaching meditation that range from Mindfulness from Duke Integrative Medicine and UCLA, Yoga Nidra and Ananda. I regularly practice in the Sangha community the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center (CIMC), have attended silent retreats at CIMC the Insight Meditation Society (IMS), and am an assistant of Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. I am excited to share my knowledge to help you develop your own path in meditation!
