MEDITATION

Frequently Asked Questions

Meditation? Oh no, not for me... not into that woo-woo stuff.

It’s easy to be skeptical and to label meditation as “woo-woo.” Most people associate meditation with monks chanting or hippies sitting around doing nothing. There’s also the misconception that you somehow have to be a particular type of person to be into meditation — generally, someone with no real world responsibilities, who has the time to close their eyes for hours on end everyday; or someone who can sit still for long periods without moving, who is vegan or vegetarian, into yoga, is religious/spiritual/New Age-y, and loves chanting.

 

Nowadays, meditation in Western society is a practical life strategy employed by many people who lead incredibly busy lives — among them CEOs, entrepreneurs, creatives, working moms, shift workers, students, lawyers, athletes, primary care physicians, and other professionals.

My life feels pretty balanced right now. I manage my stress levels well. Why would I need to meditate?

Congratulations on feeling balanced and for managing your stress levels well. Meditation can only augment the positive effects you already feel and act as an insurance policy for when you may be faced with a major life change or sudden crisis. Chronic stress involves ongoing exposure to stressors that have negative effects on the mind and body. It may include physical symptoms such as headaches, chest pains, tummy aches; which if left unchecked eventually turn into high blood pressure, ulcers, cardiovascular issues, inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and skin conditions such as psoriasis. Regular twice daily Vedic meditation practice, in particular, not only helps with daily stress management but also allows the body to progressively drop into a space of healing where it is freed up to release old stores of stress along with years of maladaptive habits that would otherwise lead to disease if left languishing in the physiology.

Do I have to stop thinking in order to meditate?

The simplest answer to this question is no. If you think your mind is always going at a million miles a minute or that your body is too restless to sit still, then you’re actually an ideal candidate for Vedic meditation. This is because it’s a technique where you don’t have to try to empty your mind or try to stop thinking or try to sit still at all. It’s an effortless practice that settles both mind and body in the simplest, most natural way.

I'm bad at meditation. Tried it before, but it never worked for me. How are you different?

There are quite a few types of meditation. If you find a particular one doesn’t work for you, then by all means try another technique. It’s not meant to be “one size fits all,” but it is better to use each technique you try enough times so you can really determine if it’s for you or not. Once you’ve found one that works for you, stick with it because you’ll grow more from the practice and start to really reap the benefits it will bring to your daily life. The technique I teach is called Vedic meditation. Vedic is from the Sanskrit word, Veda, meaning knowledge. The Vedas are a 5000-year-old body of wisdom from which yoga, meditation and Ayurveda all originate.

Vedic meditation: what is it? Why should I do it? Does it really work?

Vedic meditation is an effortless and natural mental technique designed for people who are actively engaged in daily life. People like you with work, family, relationship commitments who are constantly multi-tasking and often at the mercy of their hyperactive minds and busy schedules.

It’s very simple mind technology that can be practiced anywhere and does not require specific focus/concentration nor contemplation/visualization. When you do it for twenty minutes twice a day (once in the morning and once in the afternoon/evening), this effortless practice allows you to take the mind beyond thought to a restful yet fully alert state of consciousness. Regular practice brings with it many health benefits; including better sleep, more energy, less stress, reduced anxiety, mental clarity, emotional wellbeing, increased calmness, and deeper rest that is more regenerative for your body than a good night’s sleep.

I don't have time to meditate. I'm too busy. How will I even fit it in?

If you think you can’t afford to meditate, chances are, you can’t afford not to. You’ll feel happier, work smarter, be more creative, stress less, stop worrying so much, accomplish more in much less time, liberate yourself from addictions, make better decisions, foster better relationships, and be more at peace with your self.

Okay, you've convinced me. How do I get started?
Coaching for Business Growth

These coaching sessions are for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs, from service providers to product creators and retailers and other small business CEOs. Through the practical application of this program, together we create success and help you thrive in your role not simply by talking about business challenges and growth opportunities, but by overcoming and pursuing them. As part of the process, there will be core questions pertaining to sales, marketing, operations, finance, leadership, management, and overall business strategy that we will need to address. Apart from the variations on these you’ve likely come up with yourself, we will also dig deeper and focus on ascertaining how the business you’re growing will ultimately make you a better person and how financial success means you become more poised to contribute to a better world.

 

First step is to book your free evaluation session, usually conducted in person or via Skype. This is a no obligation 45-minute meeting where you get to tell me all about where you’re at and where you’d like to be, to which I can offer up preliminary suggestions and insights. After the session, you’re better able to decide whether further coaching sessions are for you and we can then move forward from there.

Life Mentoring

As a mentor, my job is to inspire you to take action that is full of spirit, meaning, and purpose — even if you don’t feel quite ready. As my own experiences have shown me time and again, there is a vast difference in the quality of experience between leaping to take right action versus delaying or blocking yourself due to maladaptive habits and debilitating thought patterns. My belief is that there is an inherent flow to everything. But when you’re stressed and feeling constantly pressured to meet life’s many deadlines, you miss crucial cues and easily disconnect from this flow.

 

Please know that it’s not my role to make decisions for you, but through the mentoring process, you will be offered insights and perspective that may be tricky for those closest to you to give. You will also be provided a balance of practical tools, step-by-step guidance, and imaginative activities designed to stimulate intuition and facilitate flow. The outcomes include giving you a newfound confidence from a more grounded place where you feel empowered to move forward and make new life choices. Ready to begin? Let’s start you off with a complimentary 30-minute consultation, which we’ll use to make sure we’re a perfect fit before you commit.

Struck down by a cerebrovascular accident two-and-a-half years ago and hospitalized, meditation became a vital recovery tool. Consequently decided to learn how to teach the technique that saved her by making a four-month pilgrimage to the foothills of the Himalayas to become a certified Vedic meditation teacher. Now she’s back in the Western world to teach meditation the same way it was taught to her in the hope of helping other busy professionals who may be grappling with stress-related issues that could be adversely impacting their health, relationships, productivity, performance, self-esteem, creativity, and general capacity to cope with overwhelm. Also on offer are business coaching and life mentoring as complementary modalities. Because once you learn meditation from Z, you will start experiencing shifts and it’s always nice to know that structured forms of support are there in case you might need them.

 

Oh and at some point, do make sure to talk to Z about how she actively uses meditation for neurohacking, stress management, and transformation. Then watch closely as her eyes light up some more and she starts getting really animated.
