Hello from Northern VA!

Hi Everyone! I'm so excited and honored to be a part of this community. I started meditating in college as a way to deal with stress and anxiety, and I did that off and on for many years. In 2019, I committed to the practice in a way that I hadn't before, and decided I wanted to become a meditation instructor in my spare time, so I enrolled in a virtual course to do just that. I really enjoyed it, but I didn't know how to go about offering instruction. Then March 2020 came around, and I felt an even stronger desire to help others, but still wasn't sure quite how to do it. I think that meditation really helped me get through the scariest days (for me) of Spring 2020, and I wanted to offer this help to others. This year I decided I wanted to really go for it, and to broaden and deepen my education by enrolling in a second course, which is how I found Sean Fargo. I'm hoping to finally host meditation sessions and workshops on a more regular basis. I would love ANY and all advice on how to do that!

Here's the fun twist: This summer, my husband and I are moving with our sweet Pomeranian terrier mix, Sadie, to Japan. I'm excited to see how/if I can potentially lead meditation or mindfulness sessions to English speakers there!

It sounds like you have quite an adventure ahead of you! Have you been to Japan before? What has inspired this move for you? I am sure that you will find a community to serve when you are there. 🙂

Thanks, Gillian! 

Yes, I have been to Japan before, but it has been about ten years, and it was just a quick trip. I have never lived there! My husband's new job will be there. I agree, I'm sure it will be quite an adventure! 🙂
