Perspective is everything
About seven years ago, my life looked very different to what it does now. I was living at pace. I spent over 20 years in the corporate and startup sectors in the media and technology space.
I was married with young children, and busy. There was an enormous amount of travel and life was demanding.
I looked outwardly fine; but it was beginning to show that I wasn’t handling the stress. When I look back now, I changed not a moment too soon. I was probably going to become increasingly unwell if I continued living such an intense lifestyle.
I needed to relieve stress, so I began experimenting with different meditation techniques. I would go away to beautiful meditation or wellness retreats, and would leave these experiences feeling fantastic! Then would come back to my busy life, and before long I would be right back to where I started.
Lacking proper sleep, stressed and anxious, I was self-medicating with alcohol as well as prescription and recreational drugs.
Vedic Meditation was a timely and welcome solution.
Why Vedic Meditation?
I had to find a way to build meditation into my everyday life and routine. Vedic Meditation is the perfect style to integrate into your life effortlessly. This helped me instrumentally, so I wanted to share my solution with the world.
My life completely changed 180 when I decided I wanted to teach meditation and get out of the industry I was in. So started my twelve month journey to becoming a Vedic Meditation teacher. Fortunately, I have been able to combine my previous business experience with this new-found passion.
As a meditation teacher, I felt the need to connect more people to meditation teachers around the world.
In 2015, my brother Christopher and I bought the meditation app, Insight Timer. Now with over 8 million users, 6,000 groups, and 4,000+ meditation teachers and musicians, Insight Timer is the most used meditation app in the world.
I have now returned to Sydney after more than five years teaching meditation in Paris, and all over the world. I’m so excited to share the powerful benefits of this ancient practice to busy Australians.
Thanks for listening to my story. I look forward to hearing yours.
