Do you long for peace, but are unable to stop? Is your restless, busy mind pulled around by fear, desire and habit? Do you have real depth of feeling, yet not know how to give it best expression?
Our time together will explore how to show up, slow down, and meet life more fully and freely. Real meditation uses the ordinary experience of this very moment, to train the mind, free the heart and be intimate with ourselves, others and all of reality. Lend me a little of your attention, and let’s explore together.
