My Approach

When I teach you meditation, I bring a variety of techniques to the table. This helps you find and choose an approach that works for you so that you can establish your own practice.

I first began meditating in 2002, but I didn’t have a routine. In 2008, I established a regular practice. Later, when I began going to retreats and trainings, my practice went to a whole new level.

My personal practice includes a variety of different types of meditations. I love using mantras, breath awareness meditations, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can't stop thinking?

You might be surprised to learn that thoughts are a normal part of the meditation process. The mind is designed to think. With time, you’ll learn to focus less on your thoughts and more on your meditation.

What to do if you can’t stop thinking in meditation.

Meditation is for people who have traveled to India and studied with monks

Meditation is a practice that is accessible to everyone.

Does a soccer player have to be from Latin America or Europe to be good at it?

Meditation is just the same in that it’s a practice and you can learn to get good at it anywhere.

In fact, Cynthia herself has never been to an ashram, never been to India (yet), and has successfully meditated for more than a decade.

Meditation is a luxury

Meditation is a skill that, when practiced, bestows benefits that will surprise you.

You’ll learn how to be more focused and efficient. In the long run, this will save you time and energy to be able to do other things.

It is a practice of self-love. When you make time to do this practice for yourself, you’ll be more present for family and friends who need you.

You’ll also be calmer when life’s events go up and down.

When you think of it as a luxury, retrain your mind to think of it as a necessity – one that will benefit you for your whole life.

I never know if I'm meditating correctly

If you bring your thoughts back to the focus of your meditation (i.e. the breath, or a mantra), you’re doing it correctly.

But there’s more to it than that. Why not sign up for a class to find out?

What if I don't have time?

Think about all the things you do during the course of a day that take five minutes:
Standing in line for coffee
Microwaving your lunch
Waiting in traffic
Scrolling by on social media
Brushing your teeth

You can learn to meditate in as little as five minutes per day. When you start to see benefits, you’ll want to increase the time you spend meditating because you’ll see how it can be so helpful in your day-to-day life.

Meditation is hard

You just need to be willing to give it a try, and be willing to re-focus on the object of your meditation, no matter how many times it takes.

However, there are things I can teach you to help make it easier.

Speaking Engagements

Books I have published

The Tree of Life Coloring Book

In 2017, I created this coloring book. It’s not a “normal” coloring book in that it invites you on a sacred journey. There are 27 drawings to color – total – with 3 series of 9 drawings.

Each series starts out with the seed of life and ends with the tree of life. The seed of life is a simple image, and the images get progressively more complex.

The Tree of Life Personal Development Journal

Also in 2017, I created the Tree of Life Personal Development Journal. It contains exercises and activities that I use in my personal life: journaling, meditations, coloring, reflection, haiku-writing and more.
