At some point in the last decade or so, being overwhelmed became a new normal for many Americans. Various factors influenced our current reality, including advances in technology that keep us on an electronic treadmill, a volatile economy and job market, and a general state of chaos and disorder in the world around us. The result is constant, unrelenting stimulation and change that we all must adapt to over and over again. As overwhelming as these external factors can be, inner peace is possible amid the chaos of modern life.
I became a Meditation and Mindfulness Instructor so that I could help others find that seemingly elusive sense of inner peace. I teach mindfulness meditation, which involves body relaxation and breath awareness techniques that you can learn in class and do on your own at home. It requires no special skills or gear to learn to meditate with me – just a willingness to learn a very simple technique and to practice regularly.
With regular practice, people experience numerous benefits including: sleeping more easily and soundly, improved focus, increased energy, being less reactive to stressful events, a greater sense of balance and wellbeing, and a renewed appreciation for life. While external stressors can’t be eliminated from our lives, we do have the power to change the way we react to them. Meditation is a way of training our bodies and minds to respond to these demands in healthier ways that don’t leave us feeling depleted.
