I first met Marco Dean in February 2014; I was passing by this famous holistic shop in Covent Garden called Mysteries and looking for something interesting to do, maybe a new course, when I came across a free meditation class.
As I looked at the picture of this man, I couldn’t help but feel a bit curious about the whole thing. “Mmm I wonder what this class will be like?”
Up to that point, I hadn’t had much meditation practise – apart from a few courses I had taken in the previous year (2013) – so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect or what kind of meditation he would be teaching.
Little did I know how much that class would dramatically change my life.
“A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part.”_Nisargadatta Maharaj
Marco held a class on alpha meditation, with shamanic background; with very simple meditation techniques that can be practiced for as little as five minutes a day, and can definitely have an effect on your way of thinking. Not because it changes what you think, but because it enables your consciousness to operate on a better level.
It’s like exercising.. You exercise to have a healthy body, and you eat well, you brush your teeth to make them clean. Well, with meditation, you exercise your brain! It’s weird to explain, as it’s different for everyone.
Nonetheless, meditation has been scientifically proven to enrich and benefit your brain capacity as well as having various other related health benefits.
Quantum physics studies have also acknowledged the power of the mind in creating your own reality. Your thoughts are interacting with everything around you, down to the very atoms.
Therefore, when you start meditating and perfecting your consciousness, “things”start happening.
Anyway, everyone has to start from some point, and I was lucky enough to take part in this weekly meditation class for a year, and now I meditate every day.
Marco is a very interesting character, very mysterious and quirky; it took me a while to get him. That’s the thing with mystics; they make you think, they puzzle your mind, and they don’t give you any answers. Instead, they make you question everything and find out for yourself.
Here is our interview with Marco. I hope you enjoy it.
One of the things I love to hear from Marco in class is the freedom he gives you when you ask a question.
For instance, when asked “How do I know I’m doing it right? Have I reached Alpha?”
The Answer was always the same “You don’t, no one actually knows, it’s subjective, it’s different for everyone – there is no right or wrong.”
Here, you find another short video where we talk about meditation.
If I could have everyone around the world practicing something on a daily basis, it would be meditation. It helps to find yourself, your one truth, it makes you grow and connect to your inner powers and discover that life has much more to offer than what you thought it had.
It will change you into who you are meant to be, and it will open the doors for an amazing journey into self-discovery and empowerment.
