Amy Budden

BACKGROUND:

Amy worked as a Hollywood film editor for 10 years until a personal "life quake" hit in the form of a health issue and so she began meditating to heal.  A few years later she expanded her practice to include hypnotherapy, biofeedback, Reiki, NLP and EFT .  A skeptic seeking “proof" she learned scientifically validated and neuroscience based techniques. Now,  as a certified Hypnotherapist, Amy uses that imagery in her classes and private sessions. She also creates custom recorded therapeutic meditation with sound frequencies. When you learn to relax and change associations by using guided imagery, healing is activated, pain is diminished, habits change and well- being is hardwired.

WHY I PRACTICE MEDITATION:

For me, meditation has changed my outlook on life. I just feel better, I'm a better mom, I am more fun, I am lighter and it just makes everything better.

WHY I TEACH MEDITATION:

It is amazing to witness people transform when they learn to meditate. They just light up! That is what it looks like.  Week after week! I get to see them physically brighten, feel better, smile more and report amazing and positive changes in their lives.
