Teaching peace, and contributing to the inspired evolution of all of us...

At the moment, my massage appointment book is full with regular clients. I will be happy to put you on my waiting list for a cancellation. Meditation classes are on hiatus in 2022.

I am a dedicated meditator and a graduate of McLean Meditation Institute and the Integrative Restoration (iRest®) Institute. My heart's desire is to demystify meditation and to teach others how a daily practice can lead to a richer life of peace, compassion, health and happiness. I teach many types of meditation, all anchored in the wisdom of ancient spiritual practices as well as modern neuroscience.

I have been a licensed massage and bodywork therapist since 1995. I believe that the body is the temple of awareness, and by learning to "be" in the body, we can access our highest wisdom and Essential Nature.

As your meditation teacher, I have:

A dedicated personal meditation practice, one that is a significant part of my day, every day;

A deep knowledge of the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual science-based benefits of meditation;

Experience in the tangible benefits of meditation in my own life and the ability to articulate them;

A grounded, yet light-hearted approach to life and meditation;

Respect for other people’s personal beliefs and credo, no matter how different they may be from my own;

Respect for nature and the world around me;

And a passion for meditation and for sharing the many benefits of the practice for the evolution of the individual and for all of humanity.

Yoga at Home

To study the way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be awakened to all things.
