It’s stating the obvious to say that the legal profession is a stressful one. Chances are that is what brought you here.
Lawyers live with chronic stress – and that exacts a serious and often painful toll, even for those who love their jobs. Chronic stress brings the risk of a host of physical, mental, and emotional health problems. Yet we persist, slugging it out and pushing ourselves to the limit – and often beyond it – because we believe the trappings of the profession: never-ending deadlines, long work hours, sleepless nights, and stress come with the territory and we must endure them. Sound familiar? I was in practice for over 20 years and I lived it, too.
Sadly, data provides staggering statistics of alcoholism, addictions, substance abuse, and suicides among practicing lawyers and law school students. In fact, law school has been referred to as the Adderall nation. Perhaps you have trouble concentrating or sleeping. You may feel overwhelmed by your workload or the pressure of attracting new clients. You may feel anxious and that you're constantly flirting with burnout.
It doesn’t have to be this way. If you’re looking for a solution, I can help you. Relief is closer and easier than you think. The peace of a mountain top can be found close by. I will work with you to manage stress, improve your focus and productivity, health, and more – with meditation and related techniques. I’ll provide you with the personal support needed to create and sustain your practice. I’ve been teaching meditation for over 15 years. Meditation can be done a few minutes a day, anywhere, has no negative side-effects, and can work for anyone – including you! By learning and incorporating meditation into your life you can renew yourself and regain control, and in just minutes a day.
As an effective weapon against chronic stress, a regular practice of meditation actually changes our physiological response to stress. Meditation has been shown to increase the brain’s gray matter. As a result, you think more clearly. You manage our time more efficiently. Your productivity increases. You are more compassionate. You are a better listener. All these qualities will serve you well in practice. They will serve you equally well in your personal life.
In my experience as a certified meditation teacher, I’ve seen the effectiveness of meditation and the profound changes it has made in people’s professional and personal lives. I’d like to show you how you can change your life in just minutes a day. I’m devoting my career to helping lawyers to safely and effectively handle the stress and pressure of the legal profession and restore and renew themselves and their practices.
