When I was 16 I began meditating deeply and studying a variety of meditative traditions.
After reading a book on meditation (that my brother forced me to read), something in my consciousness shifted - I became aware of my overthinking-endlessly-critical-mind.
I had what some might call a spiritual awakening.
I continued meditating throughout college, and a few weeks after I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in philosophy, I moved to Spain (where I became a party tour guide -long story), and then India, to live in the Himalayas and deepen my meditation study.
After losing a fair amount of weight, shaving my head, and living in ashrams with books stacked to the ceiling on every meditation tradition I could find, I picked up and moved to Hawaii to study the intuitive and healing arts, where I eventually became the director of an intuitive meditation and healing center.
Ok, so not the most ordinary path.
As I began teaching I created my own style - connecting energy awareness, ancient wisdom traditions, and humor (just look at my face), to create a safe atmosphere for learning meditation.
My desire to bring these guided meditations and tools to people all over the world has led to the creation of my programs, including my one-year Grounded Mind Program.
My meditations have been streamed over 750,000 times and counting (hope it's not all my mom).
I'm also the host of the Energy Matters podcast, teach meditation at Cornell University, at the Den Meditation studio in Los Angeles, and travel the world teaching workshops, seminars, and retreats.
I'm honored that you are here to sit, learn, and grow with me.
