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.

If you would like to…

  • change bad habits
  • respond instead of react
  • be more focused and creative
  • have better physical and mental health, and
  • release stress


… meditation is the answer.

The Simple Easy Every Day (SEED) Meditation technique only takes five minutes a day to begin and will change your life. Even if you have tried and think you cannot reach that place of stillness within, she can help you go there.

I have not been posting because I am moving to Lake Havasu City, AZ. My contact information remains the same. If you are in Lake Havasu I will be available to teach mid March, 2020. 

“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.”

  11. Attended the April 6, 2018 evening meditation class given by Marjorie Muro. It was enchanting! Marjie is a fine speaker and teacher and it was a relaxing time. The first meditation was accompanied by the birds outside chirping, and it prepared me for an even deeper second meditation. A fine time.

  15. Marjie taught us to meditate together. It was a delightful experience. She has practiced and taught meditation for years. This is clear…she knows her true purpose. During our session she taught us to live with deeper and deeper peace within.

  16. Marji shared a beautiful meditation training with the sisters of the Sedona Red Moon Lodge this week that was very inspiring and peace-generating. As someone who has been meditating for 20 years, I was excited to learn something new about meditation from Marji – that meditation practice lengthens Telomeres in the body, which reverses aging! Thank you for your generosity and compassion, Marji!

Practicing and teaching the SEED (simple easy every day) method to us provides me with the knowledge and confidence to apply daily meditation to my life. Thank you Marjorie!

  19. I was very honored to attend Marjie’s Meditation Class and What a Gift I gave myself. I not only learned simple ways to meditate that so often in the past seemed impossible, but it made so much sense to my heart and soul.
    The gifts of the meditations we did that evening with others around and Marjie leading, I found a soft peaceful place in my heart and would loved to stay there forever. Peace, Calm, Love, Colors.
    I surely was someplace I long to return to as often as possible.
    Marjie is a Master, a True Master for all of us to share.

  20. I took Marjie’s Meditation class last Friday, and what an incredible experience it was! I felt like I was drifting on a sea of Love and journeying thru the Universe! I have been doing my daily meditations for a week now and can totally tell a difference in my anxiety/stress levels. It is so easy—anyone can do it! This is such a simple way to change your life for the better…just do it!

  21. Went to Marjie’s meditation class on September 18, 2015 and it was excellent. She has natural talent as a teacher, was well prepared, her instructions were clear and simple. Her enthusiasm about the subject makes one want to practice right away and live life with the grace that Marjie radiates. That’s so much Marjie!
