Hello current & future meditators! I'm Brandon, founder of WiseMindGentleSoul.

I first found meditation about five years ago during a class at the University of Michigan. The instructor, Dr. Martha Travers was teaching a course on contemplative practices, specifically how journaling and sitting meditation can be used in a regular practice.

To this point, I had lived a life full of anxiety and other diagnoses as well as treatments such as psychiatric medications and therapy.

The practice of meditation was one of the first methods that gave me a sense of internal peace without any side effects. This is not to say that the practice was instantly easy for me - it still is difficult from time to time.

I knew, though, that this practice had unlocked a door to further self-reflection and realization that I had not yet encountered.

I am extremely passionate about providing step-by-step and personalized meditation plans for individuals looking to begin and maintain their meditation practice.

It is my goal to take the paralysis of the “how” out of starting a meditation practice and provide a means and space to cultivate and reinforce the practice.

If someone were to ask me what WMGS meditations are all about, I would say, “We are building the mental muscles necessary to create a new relationship with our thoughts, feelings, and emotions.”

My goal isn’t just to have you relaxed during meditations (sometimes you will be relaxed, and sometimes you may be more restless); it is to establish a method for seeing thoughts and feelings as they really are - fleeting impulses.
