A seeker of Truth and a meditator for 18 years, Devon recently spent four consecutive years (2013-2017) in constant study and practice of Advaita (non-duality) philosophy and meditation. Sitting at the feet of a Realized Master in the Himalayas of northern India, she had the rare opportunity and time to ask questions, challenge every single belief she had, and investigate thoroughly not only the nature of consciousness but also the key to living free of suffering.
Devon is a teacher for WITHIN Meditation as well as for Octave in San Francisco, while regularly leading corporate workshops on Mindfulness and Stress-Reduction and guided meditation sessions for companies on both coasts. She contributes content to the meditation-based app Aura Health, and is a featured voice for Core Wellness.
Simply put, whatever level you are at, she can assist you to go deeper. For beginners, she is equipped with varied approaches to meditation, as well as tools to employ when it seems you are having difficulty meditating. For those established in their practice, she offers a deepening and maturing of that state which is constantly available even while not meditating, through the examination of what meditation really is. Everyone, regardless of experience, can find a definitive answer to the question "Who am I?" through the process of guided self-inquiry. No matter your experience, her approach effectively reduces stress and promotes well-being.
