I'm a comedian & a meditation teacher, which a lot of people think don't go together. One is peace & love & the other is making fun of stuff. I get it. But to me, comedy was always about feeling better. I like to think, you can see me perform, laugh & feel better that night. Or, I can teach you to meditate and you can feel better...forever. Doing both is an option, too, obvi.
Meditation changed my life, which came as a complete surprise to me. That's why I like to teach it. I promise you can do it even though you have a million miles of thought per second. And that meditation is not mystical, weird or esoteric, it was just branded that way.
Here's my podcast where, I give you a helpful nugget about meditation & do a meditation that you can do right along with me. Sometimes I interview other comics, teach them to med & you can do it along with both of us. I promise it mostly won't hurt.
You Can do it, too!
Meditation is easy and your body & brain actually want to do it. The system needs to power down to work properly. Author Anne Lamott said, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you," and I agree.
I never thought I could meditate. And I definitely thought I'm not the kind of person who meditates. Now that's who I especially love to teach. If you think meditation's not for you, but you still want the relax part, you've come to the right place.
What Meditation Does for You
Here's what meditation does: Instead of SUPER HIGH STRESS UPSET AAAUUUGGH! THOUGHTS all day, meditation introduces your mind to an option. Yes, you can be all upset and it's super fun sometimes, but there's also this aaaah feeling. The thing you feel when you meditate. A letting go. It's like half a glass of wine (not that I ever stopped there--has anyone?) The more you experience that aaaah feeling the easier it is to get there, even when life stuff gets stressful.
So on this site, in vids, on my instagram & my podcast, in newsletters & workshops, I can teach you to meditate. & encourage you & remind you of the benefits. Again it's not hard to meditate, but it can be hard to make it a habit. And you might have questions along the way. I'm glad to help.
I've taught meditation for over a decade which is astounding considering I'm a smartass. I'm living proof that meditation works for everyone. And it's easy (or I wouldn't do it).
Please try meditation. Because I'd like the Trader Joe's parking lot to be a little less stressful.
