CERTIFIED MEDITATION TEACHER
I started informally meditating back in the late 1990’s. Back then we called it “Walking It Off”. Not a very complicated practice: Instead of flipping my lid at the spouse, the boss or the kids – I threw on whatever outerwear the weather dictated and energetically walked it off. Some would call it “in a huff”.
It’s funny because I instinctively allowed myself the space to NOT think about what I was dealing with…or better yet…trying to resist …or control.
It was my time and place to let it all go and just BE. To put the struggle down.
I still walk all these years later (not so much in a huff) but in 2000 I was introduced to meditation after a yoga class and I knew I had stumbled onto something that would change my life. And it did.
