Although it's the outrageous blunders of high profile people that make headline news, no one is immune to behaving badly. And many of life's biggest missteps occur because our lives are out of balance. This blog is about tipping the scales away from stress and chaos and towards happiness and peace of mind. And one of the most powerful ways to do this is through meditation.

We lead busy lives, our responsibilities are great, and change is the only thing that remains the same. The purpose of my blog is to share the benefits of meditation and to teach you how to integrate this ancient practice into our modern lives. It's a lofty goal, but one that I've spent over 20 years as a clinical psychologist exploring, and it's a journey I look forward to taking with you.
