INSIGHT MEDITATION & HYPNOTHERAPY
Hello! My name is Ben Glover and I am a meditation teacher and hypnotherapist.
When I was eight years old I was taught self-hypnosis, so my passion for this work was set in motion at a very early age. Meditation has been an important part of my life for over a decade, ever since a friend introduced me to the work of Ram Dass. I became fascinated with his seminal book Be Here Now, and from that moment on my commitment to insight and awareness meditation deeply developed.
I come from a creative background, being a singer/songwriter/touring artist for over fifteen years. My artistic path very much runs alongside that of being a meditation teacher and hypnotherapist, as both are rooted in self-exploration and the intention to connect with and express what feels most real to me. Meditation especially has taught me how to be fully engaged with whatever I am experiencing right now in this moment. It is from this place of presence that we can reconnect to the peace, clarity and wisdom that I believe is truly innate in all of us.
Over the years I have seen how meditation and hypnosis has had such a positive influence in a lot of areas in my life. These modalities have become a way for me to navigate daily challenges, and have certainly led me to be a much more calm, centred and happier person. Suffice to say I believe strongly in these practices! I see them as medicine and am compelled to share them with people.
This is a wonderful time to be alive but it also has its fair share of anxiety. We’re living in a world that seems to be getting increasingly noisy and frantic. We are being inundated with information and opinions from news channels and social media. We are living in a world that is lost in thought, lost in distraction. It’s so easy then for us to get caught in all the swirling of both the internal and external world. The tools of meditation and hypnotherapy are a transformative way to simply be with all the experiences that we encounter and bring an awareness and awakened response to them.
As well as in-person classes I offer private online one-on-one sessions. Each private class is usually about 45-90 minutes in length, tailored to your personal needs and interests. As well as one-on-one sessions I also offer group teaching in community and business settings.
I am a native of Glenarm, County Antrim in N.Ireland but currently reside in Nashville Tennessee.
I am certified through the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program (MMTCP), led by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, a two year professional training program for teaching awareness and compassion-based practices.
I received my hypnotherapy certification through the Palo Alto School Of Hypnotherapy.
Looking forward to connecting with you wherever you are in the world and explore how we can work together to Be Still Aware Awake.
