Meditation & Mindfulness
Meditation and mindfulness have become buzzwords. Meditation and mindfulness practices are about living life alive, passionate and inspired with two feet firmly planted on the ground. There are many methods of meditation and mindfulness. It is essential we each find which are correct for us. An effective Meditation Teacher begins wherever you are in your process. This is one of the benefits of one-on-one meditation instruction.
As my practice has developed over 25 years, I have discovered two very important truths. The first is that while my conception of meditation and mindfulness practice began with just 20-30 minutes a day of relaxation. I have since realized that that time is actually training me to be relaxed and calm during the whole day! This is still true 25 years later. The other revelation for me was when I started to become aware that the purpose of meditation and mindfulness was not about me and my needs and wants. The purpose of meditation and mindfulness is to prepare me to be of greater service to everybody and everything I come in contact with. This truth has possibly been the most significant and rewarding shift in my life. Through daily practice of meditation and mindfulness, I know why I am here on this planet and have a source of continued inspiration and guidance. What could be more important than this?
“Working with Michael changed my life (and probably still is). Michael is incredibly powerful and intuitive as a healer, guide, and teacher. He is also an incredibly dedicated, gentle, and generous friend. He has guided me towards connection with myself and the work I am called to do in the world, he has stood beside me in moments of my faltering and grief, and he has been around to check in with in moments when I feel lost. He encourages me to ask myself some hard questions and he is not willing to allow me to settle with anything less than the Truth. I don’t know what my life would look like without Michael in it, but I imagine I would not be where I am or continuing to grow in the directions I am. I have a lot to thank Michael for and earnestly encourage you to meet with him and see for yourself.”Ashley
