Mindfulness Coach and Meditation Guide

Michael Hockstein

I’ve been practicing meditation for the past 8 years. I first started with a YouTube video labeled, “You Don’t Have to be in the Himalayas to Practice Meditation”. Back then, meditation had been in my rear view for some time and for whatever the reason, I clicked on this video and my life as a meditator began. That first 10 minute meditation session left me in the most calm, free, and unconvoluted mental state I had ever felt. At that point I knew for sure, that there is something to this meditation.
Funnily enough, I ended up in the Himalayas several years later. Through my travels between Buddhist Monasteries and Hindi Guru Ashrems I ended up finding my way to a small family village in the lower hills of the Annapurna mountain region whom housed their own Yogi. I practiced and learned more about meditation there too. So…if you want…you can also learn how to meditate in the Himalayas :p

Through meditation comes mindfulness, readily waiting in the background, waiting for the coach to put him in. We can develop mindfulness well-enough without meditation and many people do have a predisposition to self-awareness. However, meditation adds a new layer, several layers in fact, to our abilities of understanding ourselves and our internal workings at minute details – one of these layers being the development of self-compassion and self-understanding, as well as pure compassion for the world around us <3

“Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it?

The pill exists. It’s called meditation.”

Jonathan Haidt

I’ve traveled throughout South East Asia studying Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, and Modern Sciences learning how to live the best way that I can for myself and for others. Read through some of the blog entries to learn more about these ideas and teachings.

I have spent upwards of a year in silent meditation retreats in Buddhist Monasteries around the world: Thailand, Nepal, India, Myanmar, Australia, and New Zealand. The peace and structure of these places enable guests to break away from continuous distraction to find deeper sensitivities of the self (or lack there of ;p ).
