From the outside a few intakes of breath, closing your eyes in a dim room, and sitting still can seem too simple to work. We can all conjure a cartoon of a monk, cross-legged and ancient, humming or chanting his way to eternal enlightenment. This image tricks you into thinking mediation is out of touch, inaccessible, and only for a “certain” type of person.
I’m here to tell you that this certain type of person is you. The overworked. The tired. The bored. The scattered. Meditation is for every person who can summon the courage to try something new. The principles are simple, but the results are wondrous.
Life is short. That, along with many other sentiments on this page, can sound like a platitude, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Many years ago, I left my hard-won, well respected, high paying job as an anesthesiologist. It had taken years and years of schooling, and garnered respect from those around me, but it was making me completely miserable. In the years since, I’ve become a shaman and a mindfulness leader—and my potential for healing others has grown exponentially. I now enjoy success, happiness, and peace. And it all started with a few intakes of breath, closing my eyes in a dim room, and sitting still.
I’d love to teach you more about the magic of meditation. Register for my free course, and we will delve into its transformation power together.
