really take 5, read and do!

About meditatetake5: It was started here because I was getting blog-weary. That’s right. So, who needs more blogs? I teach meditation privately and at places like the JCC in Manhattan. I’m blogging because I am interested in tracking meditation and its broad definitions and applications. How does it radically change your state, mood, or circumstances? Is it mind-altering, life-transforming, or a practical tool to help you sleep better or become more productive? So please join me. Together we will find more questions, a few answers, and even some inner peace. Take 5 and let me know how it goes!

About sheilaklewis

As a writing coach, meditation teacher, writer, and academic tutor, I'm passionate about words and the silent spaces between words. In this context, I run book clubs and writers' groups where the resonance of carefully crafted words can spark readers and writers to share their own stories. Connecting through conversation; making memories matter; embracing editing and revision, and imaginative wordplay are some solo and collective outcomes. I came to what I call my "Meditate Write Now" practice after years of art-making, writing grants, curriculum, children's stories, and more. Meditation kept my mind from meandering too far off point and also led me to write from the still point within. May our paths cross in creative journeys across time and internet connections! Other details: My husband and I are the parents of two amazing sons and one daughter-in-law, and smitten grandparents of Micah (born December, 2013). I don't drive, and have lived in the same apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, for too long.
