About Win Morgan

I have been employed as a therapist for 36 years and have worked at major hospitals in both California and New York.

I have been a licensed psychologist in private practice for 30 years.

I received my doctorate at the Institute for Advanced Psychological Studies at Adelphi University in New York in 1986.

I began meditating in 1978 and have a regular sitting and retreat practice.

Anais Nin

“Behavior is the mirror in which everyone shows themselves.”

Johann von Goethe

The bilateral stimulation engages both hemispheres of the brain in the therapy process because, often, when… Read more

Meditation

Why? Meditation is to the mind what aerobic exercise is to the body. Like exercise, there are many good ways to do it and you can find the one that suits you best. Studies have shown that regular meditation promotes mindfulness (sustained observing awareness), whose benefits include decreased stress-related cortisol, insomnia, symptoms of autoimmune illnesses, PMS, asthma, falling back into depression, general emotional distress, anxiety, and panic, and increased immune system factors, control of blood sugar in type 2 diabetes,… Read more
