Geoffrey Hamilton

Meditation Facilitator and Mindfulness Instructor

Learn the Buddha's original method of Meditation as taught by the Buddhadassa at Suan Mokh Monastery, Thailand


Anapanasati, or “Mindfulness of Breathing”, is the original method the Buddha utilized when he attained enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree. This method was re-established and re-formulated by the Buddhadassa in Thailand in the early 20th century, with the reinstitution of the “Forest” tradition. Geoffrey has been studying Buddhist meditation for 20 years, beginning with Tibetan Shamata practice under Alan Wallace and proceeding with Vipassana (Theravada insight meditation) under Jack Kornfield, Thich Nhat Hanh and others. In 2002, he received the teachings of Anapanasati from Ajarn Pho, the Buddhadassa’s successor. Geoffrey has also taught Qi Gong, Yoga, and Tai chi, and elements from these practices are incorporated in his Anapanasati instruction.

Geoffrey’s Hebrew name is Eliyahu, and he has been teaching and studying techniques of Jewish meditation and contemplation since 1996. Stay tuned for a class based on methods employed by the 12th century Kabbalist, AriZal!

The Artists Way Workshop
The Artists Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity
As you learn to recognize, nurture and protect your inner artist, you will be able to move beyond pain and creative constriction. You will learn ways to recognize and resolve fear, remove emotional scar tissue and strengthen your confidence. Damaging old ideas about creativity will be explored and discarded. Working with a combination of experiential exercises, lecture, Q & A and readings, you will experience an intensive guided encounter with your own creativity, your private villains, champions, wishes, fears, dreams, hopes and triumphs. The experience will make you excited, depressed, angry, afraid, joyous, hopeful and ultimately more free.

Belly Casting
Come create a lasting memorial to this most precious event in your life! A pregnancy belly cast is a plaster cast made of an expecting mom's beautiful pregnant form. A belly cast is usually done 3-4 weeks before your due date, but you could also make multiple belly casts to capture the miraculous changes in your body throughout your pregnancy. Many couples enjoy making a belly cast or mask together, providing the father with a unique bonding opportunity with your baby. And years later you and your child will enjoy sharing this beautiful creation together, perhaps even adding later 'touches' shared by you and your child!
 Open Belly Castings
on the 3rd Sunday of every month
$65 includes materials

Reiki For
Pregnancy,Labor Delivery, Post Partum and Newborn
Pregnancy is an ideal time to add Reiki to your  growing family's lifestyle.
Reiki is safe to use during all stages of pregnancy from conception to childbirth. Couples who are having trouble getting pregnant sometimes seek Reiki treatments for their reproductive problems. Men as well as women have shown benefits from these Reiki therapy sessions.
Reiki is used during the first stages of pregnancy to relieve the stress and illness that the mother is feeling. Reiki can restore the balance and health to the mother. Reiki has been shown to relieve 
morning sickness.
 During pregnancy, tests conducted at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut shows that Reiki used during pregnancy reduced anxiety by 94 percent, nausea by 80 percent, pain by 78 percent and improved sleep by 86 percent. (www.magma.ca/~peterz/parenting)
Reiki can be a relaxing and nurturing way for couples to share intimacy during all stages of pregnancy and post partum.
