Mary and Bruce Davis – Seattle, Washington

This month Agni is pleased to spotlight Primordial Sound Meditation teachers Mary and Bruce Davis. Married now for 31 years, they meditate together regularly and say it has had a profound effect on their relationship. “The time we spend meditating has strengthened the spiritual core of our marriage,” says Mary. “Whatever other challenges we may be facing with family or work, returning to the silence and stillness of meditation brings us back to our center—of ourselves individually, and of our partnership.”

About ten years ago, they learned Primordial Sound Meditation and have become certified instructors of this ancient healing practice. They are actively involved in teaching and are currently converting an arts-and-crafts studio behind their home in Seattle into a meditation studio, where they will offer meditation classes and group meditation sessions.

How many Chopra Center events have you attended?

Bruce: We’ve attended about a dozen courses sponsored by the Chopra Center. The fact is, we’ve lost count! We enjoy meeting new friends, learning more about meditation from Deepak Chopra and David Simon, and taking a quantum leap forward in our own spiritual growth.

Mary: We usually plan ahead to participate in one to two Chopra Center programs a year. We consider it our spiritual vacation. Whether an event is held at the Chopra Center in California or at a resort like Whistler, BC, the settings are always relaxing and support the experience of deep meditation. In fact, we will be attending Seduction of Spirit in Whistler again this month. Over the years we’ve found that our typical vacations were filled with endless activity that left us feeling exhausted rather than replenished and rested. Our spiritual vacations at Chopra Center courses renew our energy and deepen our practice. It is so much more refreshing.

What was your favorite event?

Bruce: It’s hard to name just one favorite because each program has its own unique qualities. With our background in family medicine, the first course we attended was Journey into Healing course, because of the foundation it provided in ayurvedic healing. At SynchroDestiny and Secrets of Enlightenment there is the opportunity to spend time learning with Deepak and David in a smaller group setting . . . it’s a chance to get more proximity to the teachers and get our individual questions answered in more depth. These two courses led both Mary and I to each make some significant changes in our professional work and refine our life direction.

Mary: If “favorite” means the event we’ve attended most often, then Seduction of Spirit and its associated retreat, Seduction of Silence, are at the top of our list. We’ve been to Seduction five or six times and have found such value in the advanced meditation practices and the daily yoga. It adds so much to our meditation and spiritual path when we get home. Sharing this experience together, again and again, has deepened the spiritual dimension of our life together.

What inspires you to teach?
Mary: I became a nurse practitioner to help people in the process of healing in many dimensions. Teaching Primordial Sound Meditation is probably the deepest level of healing that I’ve ever been able to share with others. I plan to be an active teacher of meditation for many years to come.

Bruce: There has been no practice, workshop, book, or teacher that has provided me with as much healing and spiritual growth as meditation. I often tell meditation students that it’s one of the very best things I’ve found in this life. To facilitate another person’s introduction to the practice and to see their surprise at the power and effectiveness of meditation is deeply gratifying to me. It is very close to the core of my personal mission.
