Mindfulness Training + Positive Psychology
A mindfulness mentor guides you through a process of healing, rebuilding, and thriving using customized meditations and positive psychology techniques. This unique integration of methodologies cultivates emotional ease and a growth mindset.
Mentoring That Moves You Forward
Modern times, especially these last couple of years, have inflicted enormous mental and emotional strain on society due to adverse and demanding circumstances. Extreme or extended stress can be debilitating, and the result can be frustration, functional paralysis, and even substance abuse. In these circumstances, the best starting place for moving forward is cultivating emotional ease (inner stillness).
Having a growth mindset is knowing that your competence and effectiveness can be significantly enhanced by seeking wisdom, using proven strategies, and taking massive action. As a result, you can achieve more than those who believe their talents are purely instinctive gifts. Instead, focusing on work ethic, curiosity, and humility is a better path to take.
Do any of these questions resonate with you?
- Is anxiety or depression holding you back in any way?
- Are you considering or currently in a life transition with big changes?
- Have you been putting off personal or professional goals?
- Are you struggling a bit with finding a healthy work-life balance?
- Does trying a unique approach to emotional fitness interest you?
I Can Help
If you feel stressed, stuck, sad, angry, ashamed, lost, lonely, or overwhelmed… congratulations!
Being honest with ourselves is the first step. Asking for help is the second. Humility and vulnerability is a strength, not a weakness. It also creates fertile grounds for significant change.
I’ve been helping people in this capacity for well over a decade. You can find my personal and professional background below.
The basic structure of my method is simple:
- Action plan
Customized Meditation Tools:
- Inner-Sage Meditation for healing
- Counsel Meditation for clarity
- Manifestation Meditation for creation
I’m a meditation coach, mind-body fitness enthusiast, and the founder of multiple mindfulness-based websites over the past 15 years. My academic background includes consciousness studies and positive psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and neuroscience via Harvard’s remote learning program.
The veil of the spiritual realm began to get lifted in my late teen years. Nature has been an important spiritual teacher throughout my life. I vividly remember when I was 21 sitting on the breakwall rocks in Redondo Beach at 1 AM, staring out at the vastness of the ocean for hours; it was confounding to feel so alive and vulnerable at the same time.
I Was Dying
At age 27, my spiritual path took a massive leap forward my first year at the University of Michigan, where the practice of meditation found me. For five years, I studied meditation under a professor who was a shaman. She was the first person to teach me the importance of connecting to Nature, that many of humanity’s problems could be traced back to how we lost our connection.
The timing of some important mentors and meditation couldn’t have been better. Collectively they saved my life. At that time, my binge drinking and crippling depression pulled me deep into some dark places. To be honest, I was on a runaway train to the ultimate sacrifice.
However, this personal hell was a blessing because it forced me to pursue self-care and healing with a passion. As a result, I stand here today spiritually aware, clear-minded, light-hearted, and robust. I just needed someone to show me the way; this is possible for you too.
Before creating Meditation That Moves, I produced a 5-star rated podcast called Conscious Contact featured on both Apple Podcast and Spotify. When COVID happened I witnessed the emotional toll it was having on our country, community, and individuals. This lead to the decision to put a hold on the podcast and transition to one-on-one mindfulness mentoring services to have a deeper impact.
Below you will find three episodes of my podcast that’s relevant to the work we will do together. It also serves as a sampling of how I think and speak about the subjects of positive psychology, meditation, and human emotion.
