Who am I?

I am a 51 year old mother of two adult children. I grew up in New Jersey and recently moved to Florida. In my previous life I was a Director of a small non-profit preschool. I have worked in the early childhood education field for the past 20 years. Over the course of my career and in my own personal life, I have witnessed the rise of anxiety in our society. This was especially noticeable in the children and parents of the preschool. The demands of parenthood, the rise of social media and the abundance of cultural influences both good and bad overwhelm and confuse most parents. The drive for perfection and providing children with all the "correct" opportunities - going to the right school, participating in the right activities, providing the right food, activities, play dates, etc. has caused an increase in worry and anxiety in parents. Children because of their intuitive nature pick up on this anxiety and become anxious themselves. I have felt this as well in my own life raising my two children and even now that they are adults. In my search for help, I stumbled onto meditation. I was skeptical at first but read up on it and gave it a try. I tried it on my own through various apps and Oprah's 21 day meditation series. These had made an impact on me but I found it difficult to maintain and keep up with a regular meditation practice. I then stumbled on a meditation teacher certification program through the Chopra Center. As a teacher by trade, I was intrigued but also intimidated. Didn't I need to know more before I became a teacher? I was an amateur meditator at best. But as the quote by Yogi Bhajan states - "If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it." So in March of 2019, I began my journey to become a meditation teacher. It has been exciting and surprisingly more work than I imagined. Through this process, I have been able to keep a regular meditation practice and the effect it has had on my life is profound. The amazing thing about meditation is that the effects spill out in your daily life. While it will not stop life from happening, all the day to day stresses, it profoundly changes your attitude about those stresses and creates a sense of lightness and trust. My hope is to teach and inspire as many people as possible to create a regular meditation practice. Through increasing the number of people meditating, we can change the collective consciousness and we can change the world. "If every 8 year old in the world is taught to meditate, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation" - Dalai Lama
