I discovered meditation when I was 17 years old. In the practice I found a place within that was peaceful and calm and in sharp contrast to the disfunction and abuse of our household.
Life took me on some amazing adventures and some pretty dark places. I became all too familiar with the "dark pit of depression." I got a lot of help dealing with this and finding the cause. Meditation took on a deeper meaning...it became a tool to deal with life on life's terms and not just a way for me to escape the vicissitudes of life. I meditate every day. Twice a day. For one reason and one reason only....because my life sucks if I don't!
Are you new to meditation? There are so many way to meditate! Guided, silence, mindfulness, TM, chanting...it's all good and there IS a form of meditation that is a good "fit" for you! In the meantime ... Email me with any questions
