What is meditation and what can it do for you?
Vipassana Meditation is an ancient, deep, silent Tibetan Buddhist practice that is being used in the modern world to settle the nervous system and train the brain to be more focused, engaged and less reactive. It helps you to determine what is important to you. It allows you to turn your attention inward and discover the quietness that is ever present bringing you peace in your daily life. Silence is not empty, it is filled with answers.
Scientists have been studying the effects of meditation since the 1970s. Their studies have shown that, compared to non-meditators, meditators regularly experience:
- better health
- greater intuition
- more creativity
- increased mental abilities
- improved memory, and
- better personal relationships
Through years of experience teaching Marjorie has also seen great improvement in peace for students suffering from PTSD due to many types of trauma. She volunteers her services to first responders, veterans and mental health organizations.
It’s not about having mystical experiences, although this does happen for some. It’s about living a calm, focused, successful and happy life. Though its roots are in various monastic traditions, you don’t have to have any beliefs at all – it works anyway for anyone.

“Above all, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible. Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self, release all grasping, and relax into your true nature. Think of your ordinary emotional, thought-ridden self as a block of ice or a slab of butter left out in the sun. If you are feeling hard and cold, let this aggression melt away in the sunlight of your meditation. Let peace work on you and enable you to gather your scattered mind into the mindfulness of Calm Abiding, and awaken in you the awareness and insight of Clear Seeing. And you will find all your negativity disarmed, your aggression dissolved, and your confusion evaporating slowly like mist into the vast and stainless sky of your absolute nature.”
