“As a Vietnam veteran, and survivor of too many suicides by friends and family, Roxanna’s kind words bring me to tears of joy, that I, an imperfect human, can learn to love myself.”  Rick S.

Personalized Meditation Sessions:

I have created personalized meditations for people of all ages.  People have asked for help with anxiety, insomnia, nervous system relaxation, birth preparation, PTSD symptoms and grief support.

 

One hour session:  in person or by phone/Skpe.

Includes an opening ritual, meditation, discussion and closing. The entire hour is recorded for you to have and re-listen to. A short questionnaire is emailed out ahead of time to determine what meditation style will best suit our time.

4 One-hour sessions: (once a week).

This includes all the services above as well as email check-ins between our sessions. This not only gives you more access to me, it is also more cost-effective. Contact me to discuss working together.

Mindfulness is often spoken of as the heart of Buddhist meditation. It’s not about Buddhism, but about paying attention. That’s what all meditation is, no matter what tradition or particular technique is used. ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

I love to teach meditation!  It is a tool that we can all access for a richer life.  Anyone of any age and ability can do the meditations that I teach.  I offer many different types of meditation instruction:  guided meditation, relaxation techniques, walking meditation, silent meditation, Tonglen, breath-work, and Kundalini meditation.

There are many ways to meditate.  Many ways to become present.  Don’t be fooled.  It doesn’t have to look like sitting cross-legged on a hard floor while losing the feeling in your legs and maintaining silence for an hour.

Walking quietly in nature, noticing the rustle of leaves, or the way the light shines differently at certain times of the year can be a walking meditation.  Sitting comfortably and singing mantra is another form of meditation.  Lying down and listening to a guided meditation with headphones can feel particularly supportive during times of extreme stress.  Just sitting and becoming aware of the present moment is a beautiful way to begin practicing meditation.

Through meditation, through awareness and willful efforts, you can learn to keep your centers open. You do this by just relaxing and releasing.  ~Michael Singer

Roxanna sees the sacred in every one and in all experiences.  From birth to death and every last second of life in between, she lives as a Prayer for the Highest Good.  -Nancy W.

I believe that any gathering is magnified and benefitted by setting intention, creating a beautiful atmosphere, and holding space for that which is being called forth.  This is one of my gifts and also gives me great pleasure to be of service in this way.

Altars:  There are several altars around my house.  There is one at the entrance of my home, setting the tone for a loving and peaceful abode.  There is one in my meditation spot to amplify the spiritual energy of the space.  I have a relationship altar to lay the framework of what I desire to be and receive with my beloved.  When people come to my house,  they feel the purity of the space because of the intention I have infused it with.

I will work with you to set up your sacred space.  Whether in person or by phone/Skype, we will discuss what you are desiring to accomplish and I will give you concrete suggestions and solutions.  I will also send you a detailed list of places to acquire your altar items.

Ritual/Sacred Ceremony:  I bring my highest intention to each event.  I sit with the dying, officiate memorials for those that have passed, hold sacred ceremonies for people who are grieving, and create ritual for people who want to move forward with their lives and heal more deeply.

We can co-create a ritual that works for you or I will design one and facilitate it for you, all you have to do is show up at the agreed upon time and receive!

Several years ago my partner of eight years committed suicide. Roxanna returned to the cabin Chris and I had shared during our years together and led a healing ritual that helped transform the energy around his death. Suddenly I could remember the smiling, loving man and not just the angry, sad man. It’s been a tremendous gift to be able to remember him without the darkness.  Kerri M.
