Frequently asked questions

We sometimes think that meditation best fits people with certain personalities and lifestyles, but my experience has shown me it is accessible to everyone. Experienced meditators have included contemplatives and driven individuals, yoga practitioners and CrossFit athletes, extroverts and introverts, hermits and lovers of communal life.

The one trait that these people share is their interest and curiosity for working with their minds, and an experience or intuition for how much our minds affect our experience of life.

The best way to know whether meditation works for you is to try a few approaches and techniques. I would also invite you to discover what your meditation experience might look like by taking the research-based meditation questionnaireIs medi I developed.

No, you will benefit whether or not you have already meditated. The guidance I offer is personalized and will be adjusted to your goals and your experience.

No. I offer the meditations and guidance in a secular context, so they are accessible to all. People with and without spiritual or religious practices have benefited.

I offer a range of methods drawn from both the ancient traditions I was trained in and modern evidence-based tools from psychology and neuroscience. When working with clients we select together techniques best suited to their background, goals, affinity, contemplative experience, and strengths. I teach meditation in a secular framework which respects and can integrate your personal beliefs and practice. Read more about my influences here.

Most people who have started a meditation practice find they are more focused, more composed, respond better to stress, and experience more positive emotions.

Research also shows that meditation has proven benefits such as increased stress resiliency, increased compassion and connection with others, enhanced ability to focus, and reduced disruptive thoughts. It also enhances physical health markers for instance reducing inflammation response to stress and increasing protective activity in cells. Research also indicates that meditation can be beneficial when associated with medical support in the management of pain, anxiety, addictions, and some mood disorders. Meditation cannot, however, replace a medical treatment.

My teaching style is collaborative, attentive, validating, and I work with clients to bring them a place of creativity, confidence, and autonomy. People have also described my style as precise, and reassuring.

I trained and practiced meditation in South-east Asia where I have lived for 12 years. I have also undergone teacher training under the Unified Mindfulness system (Level 1), which is an open secular meditation system.

I also trained in Internal Family System, an evidence-based therapeutic modality that transform the relationship we have with our inner life to achieve healing, growth and well-being. Read more about my credentials here.

A typical meditation session starts with a review of your recent meditative experience and relevant daily life experience. We might monitor progress towards your goal and address any obstacles that came up. I then offer a new or deeper technique with explanations and a guided practice. We then go through questions, might further adjust the practice for you, and discuss future practice goals, if any.

We will connect on Zoom at the time of our appointment. You will also have the option to connect through the phone or Skype if this is more convenient for you.

Studies show that for typical daily practice, meditation does not lead to adverse experiences in most meditators. With advanced practice for long periods, such as intense meditation retreats, adverse experiences might occur and can be prevented and addressed by adjusting techniques to each meditator’s experience. If you are currently following a mental health treatment and are interested in starting a meditation practice, consider discussing this possibility with your healthcare provider.

If you have any questions,  please do not hesitate to get in touch.
