You may have wanted to learn meditation but were not sure where to start, or you have tried some form of meditation and felt disappointed or frustrated dealing with disturbing thoughts or strong emotions. You may have heard about the many benefits of a meditation practice that have been consistently and constantly supported by brain research. These benefits include feeling calmer, less anxious, happier, less stressed, less depressed, enhanced concentration, lowered blood pressure, less pain, improved resilience, increased patience, compassion, creativity, and mental and emotional flexibility. And in addition to the abundant mental, emotional, and physical benefits, there is also the deep spiritual benefits of feeling more connected to life and to one another, and to a sense of purpose and clarity.
I have taught meditation for over 22 years (and have practiced it intensively for 48 years), and in that time I have been able to distill core initial practices that help support a deepening of concentration, accessing a dimension of stillness, presence and ease of being. This course is based on my experience with thousands of students helping them get unblocked and more able to experience the relief and healing that meditative presence brings.
