Meditation & Mindfulness

It all begins with you.

I Can't Meditate... Can I?

Quite simply, I think you can. If you want to. I did.

But part of the trick is finding out what will work for You. Not me - You.

That's what I'm here to help you with.

The fact is that in this busy world, we are inundated with multi-tasking, demands on our time, bad news, good news, and all kinds of 'stuff' that adds stress to our lives.

If you could find a way to bring just a little more peace into your life, wouldn't it be worth doing?

My mentor davidji probably describes my style of teaching best. I'm one of those who has chosen to "not be locked into dogma, an institutionalized template, or translations pandering to commercialism."

I draw on the wisdom of both modern and ancient teachers and traditions in order to achieve real-world, real-life understanding and benefits; using meditation and mindfulness for every-day living.

Meditations Best Kept Secret?

How it affects your day when you aren't meditating.

Meditation Is A Tool.

You see, it's not just about the time that you actually spend meditating. Its also about what happens when you aren't meditating.

So...if you meditate for 30 minutes a day, it's in the other 23 1/2 hours where you'll really see the benefits appear.

And what might those benefits be?

You will handle stress better, be less reactive and more patient, make better choices, have more peace of mind, sleep better, lower your blood pressure and feel better overall.

How's that for a multi-purpose tool?

“When I met Glenda she said ‘30 minutes of meditation will change how you deal with the next 23 ½ hours of your day.’ This sold me, and I have not looked back. It is true, during my 23 ½ hours a day I am not as reactive and am living more in the present than ever. Glenda is a wonderful teacher and facilitator. I have tried to meditate many times over the years, and 1 ½ years later it has finally become a daily ritual.Thank you Glenda for sharing your gift." Ruth P

Give It A Try!

I recorded this quick video one day for a project I was working on.

I Don't Think I Can Do It -

My Brain Won't Shut Off!

No, it won't, not completely. Our brains are made to think - and we have around 60,000 thoughts a day. We need it to do its job, but we also need to give it a break so that it can slow down.  

In the Yoga Sutras the ancient sage Patanjali taught "Yogas Chitta Vritti Nirodha" - which means to quiet the fluctuations of the mind. This is what meditation does for us.

Comfort Is Key

People often ask if they have to sit cross-legged on the floor to meditate. If you can't be comfortable, your attention is going to be drifting to how uncomfortable you are.

So find a comfy spot or position that suits you - whether that means sitting in lotus position on the floor or like myself, sitting in a comfortable chair. Especially in the beginning, this is an easy way to eliminate a possible distraction.

“For years Glenda has been telling me about the benefits of meditation. My response was always, “Oh yeah. That’s good.” In all honesty I never had even an inkling of interest in meditating. Fast forward to April 2016. I attended a retreat that was offered by Glenda and Sarah. Meditating every day was part of the retreat. Wow! Life changing. I now meditate on a daily basis. Internal calmness and putting everything into perspective is my new norm. I can now go with the flow of life. Internal and external chaos is minimized."   Nancy P

Using a personal mantra when you meditate can definitely add an extra sweetness and power to your practice.
