Women's Beginner Mindfulness Meditation
"As a teacher, I found that Tracy helps you to get there experientially rather then intellectually. She doesn't just give you the map, she helps you travel it. She has a special presence that guides people into how to create that shift into more silence and calmness. We all found ourselves wanting to come back for more." (meditation student)
This group is a great stress-buster filled with openness and fun. We journey through a more exploratory and expansive style of different meditations that invites group discussions, partner work, as well as learning all the basic meditation techniques of mindfulness-based practice. It is a comprehensive course and we journey together as a private group to build safety and community.
Our class time involves sitting practice, talks, group sharing, questions, laughter, walking mediation, and a sampling of different meditation techniques. Group size is limited and will be a closed group once it starts. This way we bond as a group as we journey through fascinating material, great lectures and meditation practice.
Tracy is a popular meditation teacher with students all across Toronto and the GTA. Her classes sell out quickly. They are in a safe and supportive environment, inviting the heart space to soften and expand, creating a space of compassion and self-love. Weekly classes are oriented towards the needs and interests of the participants. Tracy will also work individually with each participant’s practice to develop their understanding of their own personal experience.
Tracy has taken numerous eastern and meditative programs from many advanced teachers such as Ken Wilber, Diane Hamilton, Thomas Huebl, Eckhart Tolle, Jon Kabbit-Zin, Adyashanti, Gangaji, Yogi Amrit Desai, Frank Berliner – too name a few. She also lived for two years as a resident at Kripalu Yoga Ashram in Massachusetts. See her biography page for additional background.
Her mindfulness-based programs are based on the renowned program developed by Jon Kabbat-Zin, founder of the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts. Additionally, with her BA from the University of Calgary, she majored in Eastern & Western Religions and philosophy. Her Masters degree also focused on psychology and Buddhist history, theory & practice. She is highly qualified to be teaching meditation.
