“The quieter you become the more you are able to hear”
– Rumi

While there are many different types of meditation, it can be an accessible and secular type of practice. Meditation can be used to effectively reduce stress, anxiety, and cope with the pressures of modern day life. Meditation is practiced by millions of people around the world. ANYONE can learn to meditate. YOU can too.

Several years ago, after experiencing the effects of long term stress and anxiety, Marcy began to practice meditation. She quickly began to realize significant benefits to her physical, emotional, and mental well-being. As her practice deepened, she observed family and friends struggle with life’s challenges and pressures. She looked for accessible, secular meditation styles that might help them realize the same benefits she had in her own life. Marcy studied McLean Meditation Institute founder Sarah McLean’s meditation teachings and through them experienced more benefits to her mental, emotional, and physical health. This led her to hear the call to teach. After completing a rigorous 200 hr course culminating with a 50 hr Intensive in Sedona, Arizona, she graduated from the renowned McLean Meditation Teacher Academy. Marcy is passionate about meditation and mindfulness and is dedicated and honored to help anyone discover the life changing benefits of establishing a meditation and mindfulness practice.
