Gillum has studied and practiced meditation for forty years, a calling that grew out of his initial training as a yoga instructor. His mentors included Swami Lakshman joo, Dr. V.G. Kulharni, Shunryu Susuki and Edio Simano. He is certified to instruct mantric meditation, but has developed his own non-theistic style that fuses Eckhart Tolle, Zen and Yoga with the focus on relaxing and observing the mind. This briefing, in cooperation with the Lifelong Learning Academy (lla-sm.org), will help answer questions such as will establishing a relationship with stillness through meditation help you to find health and peace of mind. This session will also help attendees to “get out of their minds if they want to survive the information age.” It will also teach simple techniques for removing stress and reprogramming the mind to find peace in what many believe is a crazy world. According to Gillum, your world is what you think it is. Change your thinking and you can change your world, Gillum says. In summary, this is a presentation on meditation and how it can improve lives.
