My foray into Eastern philosophy was in Religions of the Eastern World course taught by Dr. Robert Fuller of Bradley University.  I found the ethical systems in Buddhism to be sound, original, coherent and psychologically sophisticated. Therefore, it became apparent that western psychology and spiritual practice complement each other nicely. This was the starting point for my meditation practice.

Mindfulness in the MorningI am happy announce Mindfulness in the Morning.  Our meditation sessions take place in a peaceful space that adjoins my office, separate from my counseling practice.  They are free and open to the community to anyone who wants to learn meditation or who would appreciate a dedicated space for their own practice.

The sittings take place Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m.  (For many of us, it’s good to practice in the morning when the mind is fresh, and it may also fit more easily into your schedule.)  Meditation experience is not necessary.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or with any questions.
