I am naturally a very fast-paced person & this means I can easily get caught up in thought patterns & behaviors that are counter-productive and sometimes downright destructive because of the resulting stress and anxiety. I practice meditation as a way of slowing down, creating space between my thoughts. It helps me stay calm and massively reduces my natural & behavioral inclination towards stress.
I teach meditation because I see a real need for the kind of stillness and slowing-down that it provides. I see patterns similar to mine in so many other people & I know from experience how much this practice can help. Especially people who are busy with their lives and their jobs – I love getting the chance to help them find space and calm when their world is anything but.
Space 2B is, for me, an exciting opportunity to join a community of facilitators who offer types of meditation and wellness practices to a population of clients who very much need these practices. Wellness practices are increasingly important, and I’m excited to be in a space where this type of work is being done.
Living simply, for me, always comes back to the art of “starting by stopping.” Taking a pause to make a little buffer between oneself and one’s environment gives you the opportunity to listen and distill each moment into what’s really important.
