I provide a variety of guided meditations so you can find styles that serve you in cultivating health, greater happiness and a balanced life.

Key benefits of mediation include; reduced stress and anxiety, increased health (mentally & physically) and happiness, improved sleeping and increased immunity. In addition, meditation improves focus, concentration and self awareness. Through meditation you experience how your mind and thoughts effect your body. A regular practice reduces stress while increasing self relaxation which creates more patience, clarity, compassion and time for yourself.
