Meet James Ripley, Founder of TGMI

I am the founder of the Guided Meditation Institute in Boulder, CO.

I am a public speaker, instructor, and coach and expert in guided meditation. I am educated in combining guided meditation with biofeedback and brainwaves….and I designs  guided meditations with your heart and brainwaves in mind.

I am a specialize in helping others imagine change and design their life from a deeper place of purpose.

Clients hire me for 3.0 hr long guided meditation sessions, as well as workshops, and speaking engagements for events, meetings, and trainings, and voice overs.

I began his studies of relaxation and meditation in 1992 with the hypnosis society in college at Miami University of Ohio. He is certified by the Anna Wise Center as an Awakened Mind™ Meditation & Brainwave Training Practitioner & Trainer. Awakened Mind™ Brainwave Training combines the ancient art of meditation with biofeedback using EEG, SC (skin conductance), HRV (heart rate variability).

While completing the certification program he was selected to apprentice with Anna Wise, the developer of the Awakened Mind™ Brainwave Training, the foremost international authority on brainwave states and guided meditation at the time; where he assisted in the training of other practitioners at The Anna Wise Center, lead workshops, and private sessions.

I now creates guided meditation programs that give others the opportunity to develop greater awareness of their own mind-body connection. And the opportunity to create life changing habits and connect with others while learning the invaluable skill set of relaxation, meditation, and high performance.

While applying universal truths about the science of relaxation and meditation are important to James, ultimately James enjoys helping others to discover what’s unique about themselves that allows them to grow, awake, and thrive.

Because I  have had sleep challenges throughout his life, and because of the growing epidemic of sleep disorders, I has recently developed the 21 Day Guided Meditation Program for Sleep along with the digital downloads for additional support.
