The practice of meditation has changed how Robin views herself and others and allowed the changes she has experienced through OI to become trait changes, rather than passing state changes. Robin continues to study with teachers who emphasize the path to awakening that includes cultivating a joyful mind including Kittisaro, Leigh Brasington, Rev. angel Kyodo Williams, Thanissara, and Guy Armstrong. These teachers have opened the doors for the fullness of kindness and compassion in meditation, with clients, and in moment-to-moment living. Robin has found this to be the foundation from which true healing and awakening can arise.
Today, Robin is exploring how to restore physiological, spiritual, and psychological resiliency through the natural interweaving of Organic Intelligence® and meditation. Through her Meditation Teacher Training program and her time studying OI with Steve, Robin has been discovering the natural ways that OI’s understanding of going “beyond trauma” goes hand in hand with deep spiritual teachings and practice. Both teachings bring the understanding that joy is a part of the path to the deep spirituality and interconnection that is ours by nature.
