Why I practice meditation:
I practice meditation because it buys me time. It buys me time between when the you-know-what hits the fan, and my reactivity to it. It enables me to slow down, embody my body, and discern what serves and what doesn’t. Meditation is a powerful tool for me, that has shifted my perception not only of myself, but of the collective. The deeper the connection to breath, the deeper the connection to myself.
Why I teach meditation:
Because these tools aren’t a secret anymore. I want everyone to feel good, to be present, and to live as consciously as possible!
