Born on the coast of the Black Sea, memories of splashing in the water and searching for beach glass still fill my body and mind with love, light and pure happiness. I loved the smell of the sea and the heat of the sun on my skin. I knew happiness and I loved life. When I was 12 years old, my life suddenly turned upside down and everything changed. My family decided to immigrate to America. We flew across the world with three suitcases and three hundred dollars. With no extended family, no friends, no real plan for survival, numerous language and cultural barriers, immigration trials, financial struggles, critical health issues, and the divorce of my parents - life became unbearable. In my mid twenties I reached the depths of sadness and depression. Worry, fear, and anxiety completely absorbed me and self destructive patterns began to take hold. I was determined to heal. I turned to psychiatry, acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, philosophy, psychology, spirituality - you name it, I tried it. Nothing gave me the peace I once knew. Just when I was beginning to lose hope, I discovered Meditation. After my very first session I felt so light, so clear, and so complete. I felt my body and mind healing through stillness and quiet. I quickly committed to meditating every day and with each session I felt renewed and rejuvenated. I now felt confident knowing that I had a tool, a method, that gave me a sense of control, clarity, power and wisdom whenever and wherever I needed it. My overall health, attitude, and most of all trust in myself. My internal wisdom began to grow and blossom in ways that I could have never imagined. I am confident that you too will see tremendous results from this simple yet powerful practice.
