Why I practice meditation:

It’s essential for me to excel at my work as a life coach and therapist. When I meditate I connect to a field of pure consciousness and absorb stillness; the stillness stays with me during the day, enabling me to remain calm and intuit what will transform clients. 

Once we establish in an effortless daily meditation practice - life is bliss. We have a powerful tool that can help us reach our true potential. My daily practice allows me to think clearly, have more energy, be non-judgmental and accomplish anything with ease. 

Why I teach mindfulness:

I love watching people develop and giving them tools so they can relax and feel less stressed; I also point people in the right direction so that life becomes joyful and fun. People tell me I have a gift and a great voice for guiding people into calm.
