I Am Who

Hi, I’m Merlin X.  Catch me on a good day and I can be colourful like the bird. Catch me on a not so good day and you’ll see my wings have turned into crows feet beside my eyes from thinking too much.

That’s part of my nature. So is innocence, vulnerability, sorrow, peace, guilt, anger, mistrust and more. I’ve learned to nurture it through many healing modalities, meditation being a very significant one. Before I progress, when I use the term healing, although it can refer to healing of a wound, or emotional trauma; in many contexts it means to regain balance or center from general dis-ease. The beauty of a meditative process is that it’s definitely personal and allows one to empower their lifestyle and energy in a simple process, like sitting, in a fashion that is just for you.

My Purpose 

My purpose is to provide tools for us to come to a greater knowing of love for ourself and others that includes deeper levels of peace and fulfillment through healing arts and forums.

To free ourselves to see ourselves so that our actions, feelings, thoughts, words and connection are rooted in love.

In this space, the limitless becomes possible.

Meditation/Mindfulness Instructor

I’ve been instructing for 20 years. I’ve had great experiences demonstrating the methods in fitness venues, schools, acting academy and correctional facilities plus on an individual basis and in a group setting.

I published an interactive guide, Clear Your Mind, available on iTunes for do it yourselfers and as a reference tool for participants.

Reiki Master 

As well, I am a certified Reiki Master, offering a complementary process to aid in empowering your lifestyle.

Healing Gardens – Simplicity  Beauty  Power

Creating sacred spaces to nurture your nature.  A healing garden can be outdoors in your backyard or in a dedicated room within your abode or place of business.  Taking over 15 years of operating a landscaping company (RisingSunLandscapedesign.houzz.com) and coupling it with my experience as a Meditation instructor and Reiki Master/Teacher; commune, infuse and renew with the elements of nature’s beauty (cedar, water features, stone, plants, crystals, butterflies) that resonate with you.   Manifest the ideal environment to meditate, practice yoga, paint, write, play music, etc.
