Meditation can generally be defined as a practice where one gently focuses their attention on a particular object, thought or activity; practices that research shows can bring better health and peace of mind to those who practice regularly. I teach many types of meditation, including spiritual meditation, mindfulness meditation, trauma-informed meditation, visualization meditation, concentrative meditation, and meditations to cultivate forgiveness, peace, gratitude, and lovingkindness.
Is Meditation for Everyone?
While many meditators find that they sleep better, feel happier, and have more self-awareness (which can lead to healthier habits of mind and body), and while some research has reported positive findings, meditation is not a cure all. It is extremely beneficial to work with a qualified teacher, one who has had a long-standing meditation practice and some formal training. A great teacher can help you find the best types of meditation for your lifestyle, help you to navigate your meditation journey (it’s not always unicorns and rainbows!), and most importantly, respects your unique experience.
Your life. It begins within.
