This class is suitable for those with and without a current meditation practice. Where you are (or not) with meditation is not a competition with anyone else or with your own self. And meditation is not about going from monkey mind to zero thoughts in an instant. Meditation is a practice. Meditation is about awareness. It’s about knowing yourself. It’s about self care. It’s about honoring your need for balance and peace. It’s about allowing for the pause. Because allowing those few minutes of the day to pause changes your life.
Each class will go over a meditation technique, a healing exercise and a guided meditation with Reiki.
Class investment is $50 for the series and $20 for individual class drop in.

Intro To Meditation
Are you curious about meditation but tell yourself you don’t have the time to sit in a lotus position for an hour a day? Or maybe you’ve told yourself it would be nice to meditate but there is just no way you can truly clear your mind?
I GET IT because I used to think that way too. Until meditation changed my life.
And I say that from the bottom of my heart.
I used to live mired in fear and anxiety. In fact I had no idea how anxious of a person I was until I started meditating and it began to subside and I started to glimpse what life was like NOT being a bundle of nerves every day.
Life can be stressful. And most of the time we are not even aware of how caught up in stressful thoughts we are and we do harm to our emotional and PHYSICAL health because our minds and bodies are in a constant state of anxiety, stress and worry.
So what if I told you that a mere 15 minutes a day could change all of that?
That’s how it changed for me. Just a few minutes a day of meditation began immensely shifting how I felt and I began to live from a calmer and more centered place. And I believe that just about anyone can get there as well with a practice. And because I believe this so strongly I created an EASY Intro To Meditation Course so I can share this amazing gift with everyone. Even those who swear they don’t have time and cannot tame their minds.
Because no matter how much we tell ourselves the stories of what we cannot do, we owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to dare to believe otherwise.
Meditation is not only for the mind and spirit but ABSOLUTELY for the physical body as well. Just check out the points below!
I recommend taking 6 weeks to experience this 6 class course. Each class will go over a simple technique to begin to develop your practice with. I am supporting you fully on this point, that mediation is a PRACTICE that must be approached from a place of non judgment and that is what you will experience every class ; support, non judgment and various meditation practices to try on to see what fits best for you. You will also be guided through a meditation at the end portion of each class to help you develop your framework and to relax you and allow me help you to meditate.
You can begin to live from a less stressful place and feel more relaxed and less anxious than ever before. Deep sleep can become more of the norm for you and you can start to approach life from a more centered and balanced place. All for only a few minutes a day.

What others have to say about the class:
“I recently just completed a series of meditation classes with Heather that I can truly say have helped me in tremendous ways. I feel what I got most out of the experience was the ability to strengthen my focus and clarity out of what it is I want to succeed in. The class helped my current meditation practice become more centered and relaxed. At first it was really hard for me to clear my mind and to not hear anything or think of anything. Prior to the classes I found myself getting frustrated if I could not stay in the moment, but the meditation classes helped me realize that I can always find “my place” that I choose to go to because it is simply that. A CHOICE. What I truly love most is recently a friend told me I seemed different. When I asked her what she meant, she said, “Robin, you seem more relaxed, balanced, at ease and simply happy.” I can say that because of these lessons, I am. I cannot thank Heather enough for bringing such love, light and beautiful energy back into my life.” – Robin, PA
“Thank you, Heather, for a great mediation class. The guided meditations helped me to relax. The way you showed appreciation for the value of different approaches to meditation that are right for different individuals put me at ease. I loved the quotes you shared. The quote you shared at the last class helped me to avoid getting discouraged when my meditation is not going in the ideal way. As a direct result of completing your class, I have improved my meditation practice greatly and I am a more relaxed and more resilient individual.” – Susan, MD
“I liked each technique to focus on for the week. Heather made it easy to try different things with meditation and now I have a meditation practice…for real! I love meditating, I feel like it has changed my outlook each day and it helps keep me focused and grounded, as well as much calmer. I feel less anxiety when I meditate. I loved this course. I like how soothing Heather’s voice is for the meditation process and I am hooked!” – Lori, NJ
