Have you ever:
Wanted to meditate but didn’t because you didn’t know where to start?
Started to meditate but felt like you had no support?
Tried using an app, but wanted to ask a real person questions?
Meditation can be one of the most rewarding undertakings that can effect all aspects of your life... However, often people come to meditation because they know they need it, but don’t realize what's ahead of them.
There are many preconceived ideas, challenges, pitfalls, and questions that arise at various stages of meditation, and making it work can be challenging. This meditation challenge has been created to solve these problems.
A personal message:
Over many years, the number one reason I've observed for people giving up or struggling with their meditation practice is due to a lack of support. When faced with questions and challenges they had no one with a depth of experience to help them. I wanted to create a format that would support you in your journey to succeed at meditation.
In my own experience, I did have support. I had teachers who were very experienced and knew how to support me, while also being surrounded by other students. This created a community of support that both held me and pushed me, and I'm extremely grateful to have had these people in my life at that time.
Of course the only one who made the meditation work was myself, I put in the time to do the practice, but without this support it would have been easy to become lost in ineffective meditations that took me nowhere, and give up when I experienced resistance.
I know how much meditation can change people’s lives. It's been a major part of my life for the last 18 years, and I'm dedicated to helping people quiet their mind so the can live from their heart.
I do this because experiences like this are life changing and also because I know the effects of meditation go beyond the individual who meditates, impacting the lives of family, friends and workmates.
This challenge will be conducted online, so can be done in the convenience of your own home. You do not need to spend extra time travelling to a studio.
You can participate from anywhere in the world, however please keep in mind all live meetings and meditations are Vancouver Pacific Time.
The purpose behind this meditation challenge is for you to be fully supported. All meditations, group meetings and Q&As will be live.
You will also be part of a Facebook group to ask questions or share experiences in between live calls.
If for some reason you cannot make a live meditation or meeting, you will have access to the recordings in a members section.
I offer 18 years of experience in the field of meditation, mindfulness, consciousness and self development. Over this time I've developed a very intuitive and effective approach to helping individuals experience greater peace, clarity and heart in their lives through meditation and mindfulness.
Community, or fellowship, is created through a sharing of a common goal or aspiration. These live online meditations, group meetings and Q&As are an opportunity to join a growing community of like minded individuals.
Doing it on your own can be tough. Within this community you will not only have the support from myself but from the whole group.
Having strategies to help you succeed in your meditation journey are necessary. Accountability ensures you get the support and challenge you need to achieve success.
To ensure the greatest level of support the numbers for the group are limited. This ensures you will not be lost in the crowd, and attention can be given to everyone. The small numbers also means the group is able to cultivate a deeper bond.
This challenge is live. It will not be pre-recorded meditations sent to you by automated email response. This is not an app.
I will personally be leading all meditations and meetings.
Your challenge: At least 15 minutes of meditation per day for the duration of this challenge.
This will be supported by:
- One live online group meeting per week.
- One live online guided meditations per week.
- Private FB group - for support and accountability between live events.
- Live meetings and meditations are recorded and available in a member area. If for some reason you can't make the live event you can listen to it in your own time.
I believe building a successful meditation practice requires you to be able to meditate on your own. For the days there are not live meditations, you can either use the previously recorded meditations or follow the technique by yourself.
Live Group Meetings
Mondays evenings, 6:30 - 7:30pm
Thursday mornings 6:30 - 7:15am (includes Q&A time)
Vancouver Pacific Standard Time.
Daily Check-ins and Support
Outside of scheduled meetings and meditations you will have access to a private Facebook Group where there will be a daily check-in. This is also a place where you can ask questions or share experiences.
You will feel a strong sense of community with other like minded individuals here.
*All live sessions will be recorded and available to view in your member's area.
Founder of the Peacekeeper Project
I’m a meditation and mindfulness teacher, “stillness coach,” and founder of the Peacekeeper Project. I teach individuals how to quiet the mind, so they can live from the heart.
My curiosity for consciousness and healing has led me into many fields of study, from massage, movement training, and a variety of healing modalities to exploring consciousness through meditation, IST (Inner Space Techniques), yoga, and inner alchemy.
I’ve had a dedicated personal meditation practice for over 18 years and have worked in the health and wellness industry for as long. I’ve taught in Canada, America and Australia, led men’s mastermind groups, and have been published on websites like Tiny Buddha, Finer Minds and Having Time.
My understanding of the mind, consciousness and human connection comes from deep personal experience and realizations, not just from books. With over 17 years dedicated personal meditation practice I’ve developed an intuitive approach that effectively teaches people how to find inner peace and clarity amidst the chaos of life. Self sustaining inner well-being for the body and mind.
I teach in-person and online.
I was born and raised by the beaches of Sydney, Australia, and now live by the mountains of North Vancouver, Canada.
Meditation is essentially about breaking limits... Breaking the limits of who you think you are, and awakening to the truth of who you really are!
Thoughts, emotions, limiting belief systems, traumas and the dramas that continually fill our mind creating stress, anxiety, inner conflict and uncertainty, disconnect us from the present moment and therefore from our heart.
Inner peace, clarity, happiness, confidence and connection are not qualities we create, but states of being that are revealed when we quiet our mind. These states are always there in the background of our experience, but our mind is usually too busy to notice.
Meditation is a journey inward, and a re-connection to our heart.
Calm and present
