About this pro

The Georgia Meditation Circle an affiliate of the Georgia Meditation Center Dhammakaya foundation promotes meditation and spiritual awareness. It is said that all happiness, ordinary and sublime, is achieved by understanding and transforming our own mind. The mind is not a physical thing that has thoughts and feelings; it is the totality of our conscious and unconscious experiences. 

The mind can be compared to an ocean, and momentary mental events such as happiness, irritation, fantasies, and boredom to the waves that rise and fall on its surface. Just as the waves can subside to reveal the stillness of the ocean's depths, so too is it possible to calm the turbulence of our mind to reveal its natural clarity. The ability to do this lies within the mind itself and the key to the mind is meditation.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Idealy joining the center weekly on Wednesdays and being committed to your practice is my suggestion. Once there is a strong foundation I encourage people to join us on Sundays where they get to experience the teachings on a pracical sense.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am the founder of the meditation group and began my interest in cultivate myself throughout my entire life. Meditaiton and accumulation of good deeds and finding true happiniess has been my passion for many years. I started my first meditaiton session at the tender age of 10, however my committment grew as I got older. I have been teaching, coordinating, and faciliating classes, in addition to retreats, since 2008 at the Georgia Meditaiton Center.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

We recommend $5 donation for each class, or a annual membership of $180 a year. However for individual classes please contact me directly to negotiate. 


How did you get started teaching?

As my confidence grew in understanding the practice it was only natural to transition into teaching as well. I started to teach classes in 2010 and alternate with my teachers at the center accordingly. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Everyone from teachers, professional, college students, chiildren, senior citizen all walks of life


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am so thankful to have the teachers that have made me who I am today and to have the opportunity to help build other leaders such as myself. It is largely due to the Abbot of the Georgia Meditation who has given his trust and confidence in me to build a team. He has allowed me to do this since 2007 and it has made me who I am today. Seeing other people invite others to do good deeds, teachign meditation, and building themselves to be true peace leaders is priceless for me. Nothing in this world can compare to the joy I feel when I think of it!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

To use your wisdom to determine if the meditation method will lead you to meditaiton progression and attainment, unfortunately there are a lot of methods that will not lead one to insight. Always remember body, speech and mind, because the mind is quite subtle in refine and all your actions and the way you conduct yourself has an impact on the quality of your mind. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

When it comes to meditaiton and trainig oneself it is a committment and a habit must form to stay diligent in your practice. Everyone's journey is differnt and the most important quality is to be persistent with your pracitce. Are you truly ready to carve out time daily for yourself?
