Our Two Gardens by Tom SpectorFor over 30 years Tom has been sharing his special gift for helping people resolve issues of stress, worry, anxiety, fear, guilt, and chronic pain, and to restore self-esteem. Tom will guide us through two types of meditation and will present three talks on healing. Tom’s teachings are clear and easy to follow. They combine profound meaning with light humor. Most participants immediately feel the benefits of meditation. Many claim to have transforming experiences. The session is appropriate for first-time beginners and experienced people who want to deepen their practice. You’re welcome to attend any or all of the three presentations. Tom’s Meditation and Healing CD and new book, Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing will be available for purchase.

Tom SpectorTom Spector began meditating while in graduate school at Yale University in 1968. He realized he had low self-esteem, lots of anger, and was flunking out of an intense, specialized program. Meditation helped him immensely. He began to work out his deep-seated personal growth issues and rapidly became a star student, completing the full Ph.D. program in record time. In 1976, after a magical meeting with Elizabeth Kubler-Ross at a Ram Dass meditation retreat, Tom started sharing the techniques that helped him so much. He continued meditating and teaching, even when he was the International VP For Cancer Research at GlaxoWellcome (now GSK). Tom is internationally regarded as a refreshingly effective meditation teacher. He teaches at many different venues, including meditation retreats, universities, hospitals, corporate firms, and other organizations. Tom also sees individual clients. He has a special gift for helping people discover the root of their suffering and their path to heal. His Meditation and Healing CD and new book, Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing will be available at the presentations.
Tom lives in North Carolina with his wife, Joanna, who teaches yoga at Duke University and their studio. To learn more about meditation and yoga, visit their website,
