Mindfulness can feel like swimming upstream against your own mind. Yet the benefits are clear: enhanced attention, empathy, and resilience, and reduced anxiety, stress, and even insomnia. Unfortunately, too many people don’t find a practice that works for them and their daily lives. This series comes in five parts: an introduction and four follow-on sessions, each with a sample mindfulness practice based on the four primary ways of relating to the world.

Meg has been meditating since 1995, gaining profound experience while pursuing a career and raising children. She has practiced in a variety of traditions, starting with Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, then Christian Meditation, then Vajrayana Buddhism, completing Ngöndro Foundation Practice in 2004. She has been working with Shinzen Young since 2005 and is a Senior Facilitator in his Unified Mindfulness approach. Teaching since 2002, she has witnessed the enhanced resilience and personal flourishing in those who develop enhanced mindfulness skills, with beneficial effects on their friends, colleagues and family.
With deep presence and penetrating insight, Meg encourages all of us to use the joy and angst of daily living as the raw material for personal positive change and global conscious evolution. She coaches individuals at tipping points in their careers or lives, where they need to deepen their self-awareness and scale up their response to the complexities of the challenges they face. All coaching is based on an integral approach, profoundly meeting clients, illuminating the core of their challenges and developing customized approaches to learning that yield profound, sustained change.
Rich embodiment means that Meg can apply an integral approach to a broad variety of contexts; coaching high potential leaders and women at risk of homelessness, chairing a non-profit board and hosting family holiday dinners, using life disruptions from the birth of children to political turmoil as windows of opportunity for personal growth. If you mind all of your life—life will mind you back!
