Services of Designs for Peace

The purpose of this blog is to share what I have learned about cultivating a Life of Santosha or Contentment in an Age of Discontent. As I enter the third trimester of life, I am committed to living harmoniously. To practice Contentment means that, moment by moment, I re-commit to...
  • observing and accepting what life brings, no matter what;
  • remembering my commitment to practice Contentment;
  • meditating and discerning the wise action and then responding at the right time and place with wisdom and lovingkindness.

Here are some practical ways that I can help you to cultivate Contentment in your daily life.

Meditation Classes (available for groups or one-to-one)
  • How to establish a daily meditation practice
  • How to develop the Witness practice
  • How to increase peace of mind through The Object of Beauty Meditation
  • How to cultivate Santosha or Contentment
  • How to develop an intimate relationship with the Divine
  • How to create a meditative lifestyle
