Grab a pint or a goblet or a flute for this "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" session!

The universe is expanding and at an ever-increasing rate. And so is the pace of work and life and family. It's like speeding down the highway at 70 mph with the windows down. You can't even hear the music. The speed and the wind noise keeps us from our most creative and essential impact. In this session we will talk about how meditation is like rolling up the windows and get us back to our most authentic, creative, and impactful self.

  • Meditation can be hard--to begin a practice or sustain a practice--but it doesn't have to be. We will explore our difficult experiences with it and unpack what makes it so challenging for so many of us.
  • Through the lens of neuroscience, we will explore several of the remarkable benefits of meditating regularly--from increased creativity to greater equanimity to unlocking your potential (literally activating your untapped DNA).
  • Lastly, you will learn some new approaches to make it easier to begin, experiment, develop, and sustain a thriving practice that can support your aliveness and impact in the world.

Grand Rapids, MI may not be the center of this expanding universe, but we are Beer City USA, so join me as I pop open a craft brew and dive into crafting a meditation practice that supports all of our endeavors to create magic in this ever expanding universe.
