Exercise for your brain
The Mind of Meditation
Pulling from my speech-language pathology work as a cognitive therapist as well as eastern meditation concepts, I attempt to clarify the many misconceptions about meditation. These misconceptions often result in people finding it inaccessible, confusing & difficult - resulting in either not starting, or quitting a practice. It is my goal to make meditation concepts more practical & relevant to incorporate into many aspects of daily life as well as a tool in the cognitive-rehabilitation environments.
I have taught mindfulness meditation for 15 years in academic environments, the corporate setting, rehabilitation, community and yoga centers. I practice sitting, walking, running, parenting and working with the mind of meditation.
