My interest in mindfulness began at the age of 15 when, on a visit to Japan, I happened upon an entire room full of meditating monks. I was entranced by the vast silence and a curious energy I could not explain. Over the next many years, I found myself lingering in the small meditation section of the library, fascinated by the idea that we could affect our physical, mental, and emotional experiences by training our attention. I became a closet meditator who, on and off for decades, tried sitting still, pushing away the inevitable onslaught of thoughts and stories which crowded my mind. I had no teacher, no instruction save some favorite books I had collected; and although the practice always called to me, I was sure that I wasn’t doing it right. In a way, I wasn’t! Much later in life, I finally found meaningfully useful books and articles full of scientific research and a whole host of instructions; I discovered wonderful teachers and a practicing community; I enrolled in classes, courses, and trainings. I am no longer in the dark, but I am still learning and growing in my practice. It is my intention to share what I have learned about mindful living and needs-awareness in order to contribute to more compassion, harmony, and understanding in the world. In addition to all the potential benefits shown through scientific research, the practice of mindfulness may simply make life more wonderful, and that is my heartfelt wish for everyone.
