Jim McDonell -Meditation

Introducing Jim McDonell 

In 1976 Jim began meditating to help him relax for his engineering exams.

Through his 40 years in the telecom industry he went through many ups and downs and became what he calls a “crisis meditator.”

Later in life he adopted a more consistent meditation practice and realized he was a better listener, managed stressful situations more easily, and was a better partner at home.

He had a gut feeling there was more to learn, and maybe, something he needed to share with others.

The davidji Masters of Wisdom & Meditation Teacher Training program ignited his journey inward and with it the realization that his path is to share these ancient teachings in a modern way.

Jim is known for his logical approach to teaching meditation, sharing scientific studies about the benefits of meditation, and being a student himself in every class.
