We live in a culture where being busy is better, and stillness can sometimes feel selfish, lazy, or unproductive. BUT, I’m here to tell you that meditation practices will actually help you show up more present, engaged and productive for all other realms of your life!
Sometimes we feel as if we’ll always be trapped. As if the place we find ourselves in feels like quicksand. But really, this feeling of being stuck is merely a pause… a rest… before we launch into our dreams, into where we want to be.

You’ll also realize that it is a pure present-moment experience to help you connect to your essence.
This meditation is designed to give you 5, 10, 20 minutes of pure present moment – pure intimacy – a gentle safe pattern interrupt in the wild tsunami of life. Enjoy and see how tantra raises your vibration.
