During a month long yoga teacher training in Sri Lanka, I came to appreciate the value and necessity of breathing exercises (pranayama) and a meditation practice. About midway through this training, my family back in the States had a crisis. The middle of the night phone calls kept me awake worrying.
Finally, one night around 2:00 am, I laughed to myself and realized, “There’s nothing I can do about anything in Kansas City from Sri Lanka. I may as well let it go and stop worrying, so I can get some sleep, get up in the morning and sit on my cushion for 90 minutes.” There was so much freedom and relief in that realization. I knew that at least for those 90 minutes I did not have to think about what was happening back at home or feel guilty that I wasn’t there to help. At that moment I understood that a quiet mind is a stress-free mind and a mind cluttered with worry is useless.
Nowadays, I do my best to start every morning with a mindfulness session, whether it’s a few minutes in quiet meditation, a visualization, or some breathing exercises.
Using techniques I learned from my own influential teachers, I can help you manage stress and worry with some short, simple exercises that will help you find balance and happiness at home, at work, in your relationships, and most importantly, within yourself.
I offer individual, small group and corporate mindfulness sessions.
