meredith edwards holds sacred space for clear connection, courageous creativity, and conscious living.
To hold something sacred is to hold it with great respect, meaning, and reverence. It is with great honor that I hold sacred space for others in service of myself, my community, and the world. Through the healing arts, it is my mission to inspire, guide, and create a safe place for others to reveal their authentic voice, creativity, and power.
I began walking this path when I realized I was a highly aware, empathic, and intuitive person. I was the friend my friends would seek when they needed an extra eye. I was the vault you told your secrets to without being judged or worried that it would come back to haunt you. I was the stranger you found yourself telling your life story to. I loved being that person and I came to realize how significant and important that role is. So I decided to go deeper.
It was in 2008 when I first moved to New York that my own [spiritual, healing, transformational, fill-in-the-blank with whatever elegant 'new age' word] journey really began. I credit a big portion of this to Eckhart Tolle's, A New Earth, that was gifted to me by my best friend, Samsara Shmee. I was coming from a dark place and trying to hang on to the sliver of light that I could still see. It was reading this inspirational book that truly opened my mind, heart, and consciousness to something more. I had finally come across ideals about humanity, our purpose and this universe that made sense to me. I could actually hold on to them and at the same time they made me feel free and at ease; I got it.
The years that followed were so full. Through building soul-shaking creative projects from the ground up, starting an all women's production company, working half a decade at a fancy private equity firm, learning to teach yoga in Bali, leading my beloved circle with The Wild Woman Project, transforming alongside my holistic coaching program, directing my first feature film, all the loves gained, loves lost, and the daily "only in NY" experience, the years were full of triumphs, woes, highs, and lows. I took giant leaps forward into new and beautiful terrain; I took painful tumbles backward that always introduced me to a new way, a new path. I veered shakily off course, and sometimes I just stood still. I took some lessons with me, I let some go. I am still, of course, on this unpredictable path, breath by breath, taking one step, leap, tumble at a time, yearning to deeply connect and be there for each moment. For this is life, right in front of my eyes; I decide how I want to live it.
I yearn to deeply connect and be there for others. For this is life, right in front of our eyes; we decide how we want to live it and we can always find ourselves again and again.
