I have been a student of meditation for over 45 years and have actively taught meditation since 1994.

Neuroscience has identified a capacity  of the brain called "Neuroplasticity"-- which means that our brains can keep changing and developing throughout our lifetime.  

Meditation is a form of brain training; it cultivates our capacity to pay attention, to be more awake and more alive in each moment of our day.  

It increases positive abilities such as:

  • resilience
  • concentration
  • patience
  • compassion
  • creativity
  • mental and emotional flexibility
  • the strength to face stressful situations with a calm and clear mind

In addition to the mental and physical benefits, meditation can also heighten our felt connection with something larger than ourselves-- a sense of the spiritual.

Who can Benefit?

People who suffer with:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Chronic Pain
  • Overwhelm
  • Chronic or serious illness
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Creativity Blocks
  • Lack of meaning and purpose

Jon Kabat-Zinn discusses what mindfulness and meditation are really about: presence of heart. This was part of a talk put on by UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center. http://greatergood.berkeley.edu

I offer an 8-week intensive group training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).  This is the same program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn.  

I also offer individual in-person and Skype trainings tailored to the your specific needs, either alone or within a psychotherapy process.
