WHY I PRACTICE MEDITATION:
I had a beautiful, life-changing out of body experience at the age of 15, and was able to rest for a time in our true self of complete peace, love, freedom and joy. Since then I've studied and practiced many forms of meditation to surrender more into that sweet emptiness/fullness. Playing my flute is one of my favorite meditations, because it opens me to a sweet, beautiful, peaceful, light energy.
WHY I TEACH MEDITATION:
I've taught many kinds of meditation, and enjoy sharing flute because it allows people to have their own experience, relax and heal emotionally, and settle gently into that still, silent realm.
