Read about Lisa’s meditation journey in her Q&A below.
How did you first discover meditation? Who or what inspired you to meditate?
I first was exposed to meditation from my older brother when I was 12. It was like I was a fish to water. I became a daily meditator with quite a regimented practice. I was so intrigued with my own inner world. I never stopped. This will be my 41st year of meditation practice.

What’s a valuable lesson or insight you uncovered during your meditation journey?
The lessons never really stop and are far too many to note. But what does stand out is the wonderment that never stops when one takes time to inquire deep within, create stillness, and cultivate a relationship between mind and body. I have uncovered pieces of myself that might otherwise remain hidden under life’s busyness.
What’s your favorite meditation technique and why?
Neurosculpting is my favorite technique because it’s not just for relaxation, it uses neuroplasticity principles to help me rewrite the patterns of my brain quickly and efficiently. It’s potent, efficient, and creates fast and lasting changes. It’s the only form I use anymore.
