4 Ways Meditation Changed Her Life 


Something that makes me super happy in working with my coaching clients individually or in groups, is when people are able to identify for themselves the many positive influences and benefits that formal meditation and (less formal) mindfulness practices, bring into their lives. 
It’s so exciting when people can see for themselves the many profound changes that they’ve experienced. 


Today one of my wonderful clients was able to identify for keyways and what her life was better: 

1. Able to deal in healthy ways with school and relationship challenges 

2. Able to remain more focused and less distracted by worry or anxiety 

3. Increased overall social engagement and wellness 

4. Emotional intelligence has increased significantly, resulting in much more emotional control and resiliency. 


One of the things that I think is so important to keep in mind, and I feel like it’s a niche that my work really occupies, is that frequently people think mindfulness is another item to check off a to do list. 

It’s not! 

It’s something that can be a seamless part of everything we do enhancing our happiness and appreciation every day of our lives. 

There’s only one thing we can control in life and that is our reaction to what’s going on. Mindfulness can help us to drop the catastrophe brain and be happier no matter what.

Wishing smooth sailing to all.

A photographer and writer with over 25 years experience finding the decisive, under-the-apparent-reality- moment and capturing it on film and in writing for international press, magazines, newspapers including the Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor and agencies such as The Associated Press, AFP, and Gamma Liaison. My work is in private and corporate collections. I was an artist in residence at Polaroid. I've created original and innovative advertising images for Leo Burnett etc. Today, I'm working exclusively in analog media using film, doing hand processing and printing. Using Leica and a funny array of Holga-type and two and a quarter type cameras. I'm currently available for portraits and projects for social good. This I believe: "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." I believe as Cartier-Bresson did, in technique and the ineffable. To shoot without thinking, that a good photograph is a result of an improvisation between the world and the photographer. One must put one's whole heart and mind into play and see what comes. Whatever it is, that moment is sacred and will never come again. Making a photograph is a contemplative act, a spiritual practice.
