“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” – Buddha
Despite any misconceptions about meditation, the practice itself is simple. We come back to the present moment, again and again, using the breath as a point of focus. Simple. Not necessarily easy, but simple. By becoming more aware of our moment to moment experiences, we discover the breadth of our sensations, thoughts and emotions, and in that we hold the key to discovering the joy that is always available to us in each moment. We learn how to find balance and peace, how to cultivate love towards ourselves and others. We learn how to shine.
I teach meditation, but more importantly I have been a dedicated practitioner for many years. I offer meditation guidance particularly based on traditional Insight Meditation (vipassana), Mindfulness, and Metta, as well as the non-denominational approach of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
