“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
~ Thomas A. Edison, 1903.
I began practicing mindfulness after the Christchurch Earthquakes.
They provided a lesson in the emotional, psychological, and physical effects of trauma-induced stress. I wanted an effective, practical, and well-researched method of dealing with stress and anxiety, and began to practice mindfulness. My background is in philosophy of mind, and I was intrigued by the objective and investigative aspects of mindfulness.
The results from my own mindfulness practice convinced me that this was something that I wanted to share with others. I received my teaching certification through the Gawler Institute.
As a mindfulness instructor I draw from years of experience as a teacher and a meditator. I teach mindfulness at beginner and advanced levels, in large classes and one-on-one sessions.
