    Dear Neil, Thank you so much for the great mindfulness meditation class you led at the Shirlington library on Saturday, December 10, 2016. We had an excellent turnout, and I believe everyone who attended was enriched by the experience. I also felt that the humor you injected into the presentation was appreciated. It truly was an educational experience as well as a relaxing experience. Thanks again for all the thought and meaning you put into the class. As you put it, “meditation is not optional” and I feel like your students (myself included) walked away with a better appreciation of why that is so.

About this pro

Spiritual development is such an integral part of life, and often one of the most neglected. These times that we live in can be so overwhelming with stress. We tend to go from activity to activity without ever taking a personal 'time-out.' Whether we are struggling with a sense of direction or desperate for energy and clarity as we provide for the needs of others, we frequently get side tracked. Even times of triumph can be followed by distractions of worry, anxiety, fear. I am a Certified Meditation Instructor with The American Institute of Health Care Professionals, Reiki Teacher, Corporate Trainer, Massage Therapist and Life Coach who has positively impacted the lives of clients and friends. I have taught popular programs at local hospitals, clinics, yoga studios, health clubs, educational institutions, religious organizations, libraries, book stores, as well as sessions in private homes. Years ago - as some of my photos document - I found myself on a profound spiritual journey. Life and time had led me to a place where I was ready to receive the gifts that I now am guided to share. Aiding others in reaching their true potential, watching the miracle of another human being learn to value and nurture themselves emotionally, physically, spiritually - these are rewarding core values that motivate me to share the powerful tools of Meditation and other self-healing techniques. I enjoy seeing the incredible transformations, as clients go from stress and anxiety to a place of calm and serenity. These last two decades have been spent assisting hundreds of individuals and groups in their efforts to gain stability, peace and energy in their lives. (There are often times when it can be difficult to simply remember to breathe!) If you are feeling fragile, know that there is an inner strength which you posses. If you are feeling lost, know that there is a path patiently waiting for you to explore. Besides... Meditation is not optional! This is just one of the reasons I have kept my fees low and have often volunteered my time within numerous organizations. No one should be burdened with financial stress when it comes to sharing such a precious 'natural gift'... the gift of Meditation! Some quotes to consider: "...Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." - George Bernard Shaw "...Two significant times in our lives; the time we are born and the time we find out why!" - Mark Twain "...I have experienced so many terrible things in my life and some of them actually happened." - Mark Twain
