What type of meditation do you teach?
This meditation is a 'Being' technique. In this effortless technique a mantra is used to systematically go beyond the level of thought and access finer states of being & an inner silence that results in a deep state of rest. This deep state of rest is designed to reduce stress, increase awareness & capability to meet the demands of daily life and improve overall wellbeing. It establishes a deeper connection to yourself, others and nature.
Why do I need a teacher?
Nothing can replace the hands-on experience of learning in person from a qualified teacher. The experience is far more personal, detailed, and impactful in making meditation a daily habit. Also, the relationship between a teacher and student creates a powerful bond that supports ongoing personal development and commitment to the practice.
How do I know if I am ready to start meditating?
When there is inquiry & desire to change; A sincere wish for personal growth & evolution. An honest interest to learn to meditate that comes from an inner curiosity & a willingness to practice is a sign. If you look at what is possible with meditation and become curious to take a course, you are ready.
What is holding me back from learning to meditate?
Generally speaking - Fear of the unknown. What generally prevents a person from learning to meditate is the fear of change. Paradoxically, what generally leads a person to meditation is a deep desire to change. Once you understand meditation you will let go of the perceptions & assumptions that hold you back and open yourself up to your true potential.
What is a mantra?
A mantra is a sound / vibration that is designed to take you to a quieter state of being. The process of resting your awareness on a mantra, allowing your mind to wander and then effortlessly returning awareness to the mantra creates the conditions for deep rest.

Is meditation difficult?
