Sandeep walked in one day, sat down, started dreaming and never got up and we don't know who to call to collect him.
Steve Ferrell teaches Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness practices in the Hamilton area. Steve has been studying and practicing meditation for a decade. Over this time he has worked with many different techniques from different lineages of Yoga, and Buddhism as well as studying Western-based psychological perspectives.
His searching finally settled when he found Zen practice 3 years ago through the teaching of his primary teacher Shoken Michael Stone. He believes that a sitting practice is essential for survival in an "Attention Deficit Society". He also strongly believes in the power of meditation to help calm habitual thought patterns, and centre one's self directly in the middle their life. He helps his students find the simplicity and beauty within the work of sitting and mindfulness based practices. He continues to study the Dharma with Michael as well as other teachers including Roshi Enkyo O'Hara, Peter Levitt, and Pascal Auclair.
He is currently studying Yoga Therapy with Susi Hately of Functional Synergy and studying Ayurveda with Toronto based Ayurvedic practitioner Matthew Remski. And, also involved in on going research studies to see how Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda can help people primarily in the mental health field.
I started my mindfulness journey in 2011, taking my friend’s hot yoga class and coming out a dripping mess. Though this connection to yoga I found my love of meditation and creating space. Through my commitment to the practice I learned more about my body, my movement and my internal self.
I truly felt the freedom and inspiration to grow. Soon after I took a 200 hour teacher training course at my home studio and I have been continuing to expand my practice ever since I count myself as a skeptic – I am not quick to adopt a new pose or technique before having connected to it and understanding it. Which means I don't strictly follow a, or any, particular school of meditation, I take the best of whatever I learn about, and adopt it or leave it for future date.
I have been been practicing meditation and it's branches since I first engaged in yoga. Always seeking a new way to understand and connect to this brief existence. Meaning that I'm willing to discuss the benefits and detriments of any practice, for I hold none solely above others.
We are all heading in the same direction, taking our own path. I wish to honour the journey, where ever it leads.
