Private Meditation Instruction

Mindful meditation is currently experiencing a surge of popularity, and there seem to be as many methods and ways of practicing as there are curious seekers.  If you have been wanting to establish a meditation practice, or have trouble maintaining the discipline to keep your practice going, I can help you:

  • find a dynamic, upright posture that doesn’t leave you in pain;

  • explore various focusing methods to keep you in present moment awareness;

  • learn how to apply the insight you gain during meditation to everyday living.

Benefits of Meditation*
Meditation helps us on many levels, from simple relaxation to freedom from suffering and full liberation of heart and mind. It allows us to:

  • defuse stress and experience greater calm

  • explore the mind-body relationship

  • connect to our feelings

  • expand our sense of who we are, beyond our fears and self-judgment

  • find genuine happiness

  • discover inner resources that can change our everyday lives

  • awaken our capacity for insight and wisdom

  • transform our worldview from one of isolation and confusion to one of connection, clarity and compassion

  • broaden our perspective and deepen our courage, based on seeing things just as they are

Both short-term consultations and ongoing lesson series are possible. Call to discuss a plan that is designed for your personal needs.
