Meditation for EVERYONE ~ how to get started the easy way

2017 has been declared the “Year of Mindfulness” and we at NEV Coaching & Consulting are very excited to support this initiative. As such, we begin with the most basic and fundamental: meditation. “My mind is too active for meditation”… “meditation is not my style of relaxation”… “meditation doesn’t work on me”. Whatever your reasoning up until now, this post is dedicated to encouraging you all to truly consider the idea that meditation is accessible to you, will give you tremendous benefits, and never has to be […]

  Last year I didn’t send out mass holiday or new year’s wishes. It was partly due to an unexpected crunch at year-end but this bothered me for a while. I expected to be able to do this and it didn’t turn out.   Yet as I thought about what I would write you, I couldn’t think of one message I would send to everyone. 2013 for me was a year of spectacular experiences, lessons, and advances and THIS was […]
