I have always meditated. In a manner, sometimes on a song, sometimes on a photograph or a quote. But in 2010, I took a formal class with the art of living in Sahaj Samadhi. We were asked to meditate a minimum of 20 minutes a day, twice a day. The transformation I saw in myself that year confirmed for me, what I had always known--meditation connects us to the vast ocean of our being that remains untapped unless we learn to quiet our mind from daily distractions--which we have been told are very important. In 2011, I was awarded Peace Revolution's meditation scholarship to a meditation retreat in Chiang Mai, Thailand. That gave me the opportunity to meditate for several hours a day for two continuos weeks. That experience, combined with meeting other Peace Revolution agents, changed me forever. I have incorporated meditation in my life on several levels--knowing fully well that our hectic lives do not always allow us time to be still. I have not shied away from only 2 minute meditation when I am short on time. I have tried one minute meditation every hour. However, I try to stick to 20 minutes, two times a day, as often as I can. But most importantly, being an educator, I have tried to start all my classes with a two minute silence--to initiate the students into this simple, effortless way of letting go and connecting with the vastness that we all are. Because I know that this connection reflects itself in all aspect of our lives.
