This practice is really the courageous art of coming alive.
As human beings we're often uncomfortable in our own skin and in our interconnection with others. With practice we can land lovingly into both.
Jody has explored and practiced meditation across three continents. She is an authorised meditation teacher in the Insight tradition and has a number of additional supportive trainings and certifications.
She believes that creatively engaging with Dharma can lead us, each in our own way, towards deeper healing and freedom.
Jody has a deep love of silence and meditation. She teaches and shares her knowledge and experience from the heart.
What to expect
As a teacher, Jody offers support and guidance through the practises of meditation, Dharma teachings and inquiry. With support and friendship, it's possible to learn to creatively engage with experiences and find new possibilities for emotional healing, acceptance and discernment.
Meditation and Dharma are really about doing less, loving more, revealing our inner goodness, and becoming deeply human. As Rumi says "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it".
Words of gratitude
When I meditate with Jody, my practice deepens into a space where there's no right or wrong way to meditate, a space where I can deeply relax, feel safe and connect to a feeling of okayness. I'm deeply grateful for her wisdom and kindness.
...the best meditation I had all month!
....time out, taking stock, being still...
...very good....very centering....
...in a very short time I could reach a stillness where later your instructions went by just in the background and didn’t matter at all, so being in the moment itself carried a beautiful quietude.
A calm and peaceful space for stillness and reflection.
Poetry as Dharma
Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to life
we have refused
again and again
