Meditation Coach and Hypnotherapist
When Ben was eight years old, he was taught self-hypnosis, so his passion for this work was set in motion at a very early age. Meditation has been an important part of his life for over a decade, ever since a friend introduced him to the work of Ram Dass. Ben became fascinated with his seminal book, Be Here Now, and from that moment on his commitment to insight and awareness meditation deeply developed.
Ben comes from a creative background as a singer/songwriter and touring artist for over 15 years. His artistic path runs alongside his being a meditation teacher and hypnotherapist as both paths are rooted in self-exploration and the intention to connect with and express what feels most real to him. Meditation especially has taught Ben how to be fully engaged with whatever he is experiencing, right now, in this moment. It is from this place of presence that we can truly reconnect to the peace, clarity, and wisdom that is innate in all of us.
Over the years, Ben has experienced how meditation and hypnosis have had a positive influence in all areas of his life. These modalities have become a way for him to navigate daily challenges and have led him to become a much more calm, centered, and happier person. He is a true believer in these practices as healing medicine and feels compelled to share them with the world.
As a mindfulness meditation coach, Ben can help you develop your meditation practice and explore many of these wonderful teachings that will help you find inner stillness, awareness, and a way of being with all the stuff life can throw at you.
Ben is certified through the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program (MMTCP), led by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, a 2-year professional training program for awareness and compassion-based practices.
