About Lightwork

Scott Robinson

Lightwork offers meditation classes in-person, online and by phone.

Lightwork is a powerful, step-by-step form of meditation that works for busy minds. It can help you boost your energy, reduce stress and take charge of your life.

Great for Busy Minds

We offer a different approach to many common forms of meditation. In fact, people who have struggled with other forms are often able to do Lightwork.

This is a step-by-step style of meditation done seated in a chair. You’ll learn to guide your mind through a set of meditation techniques, helping it to calm down so you can see the bigger picture.

Why Lightwork Works

Scott Robinson, Lightwork’s founder, explains, “Western culture is very ‘thinking’ oriented…people are thinking all the time, analyzing all the time. Some meditation practices say, ‘Just stop doing that. Have a silent mind.’ This is really challenging for most people.

At Lightwork we’re aiming for a quieter mind and we

have a very specific set of meditation steps to help get you there. There is a structure for your mind to follow, giving it something to do. The structure is really powerful and it really works.”

Scott Robinson founded Lightwork in 1995 after more than a decade of intensive spiritual studies that began with travels in Asia in his early twenties.

Lightwork is based on ancient spiritual principles and techniques that Scott learned on his own spiritual journey.

Our aim is to teach these ancient spiritual principles in the most pure, clean, simple way possible so they are understandable to anyone who wants to know them. We present these principles in a modern way that connects with people living in today’s world.

 

Why Do People Meditate?

Most people don’t have control over their busy minds.

They don’t have an ability to calm the mind and take charge of it, and because of this they don’t have a lot of control over their lives.

When you get control over your hectic, analyzing mind, you switch into a place where you have a much, much bigger perspective.

You open up a quieter, calmer inner space for yourself. You can see beyond the frantic, stressful details of everyday life and experience the bigger reality of who you are and what your life is really all about.

You are then empowered to manage your life in an entirely new way. You’re tuned in to the world around you, experiencing the big and small moments of your life in a deeper, richer, more thrilling way.

Where do you begin?

Lightwork’s Level 1 meditation class gives you a full set of meditation techniques so you easily guide yourself through meditation. Check out the upcoming class dates.

Scott Robinson

In 1995, after years of spiritual study, Scott founded Lightwork Spiritual Development, of which he is the Spiritual Director. Since 1995 he has been teaching intensively.

Scott believes that on a core level every spiritual teacher of integrity is teaching the same thing, because the core spiritual principles never change. However, there are unlimited ways to express these principles, and every spiritual teacher and practice has its own unique flavour. Finding a flavour that one likes is the task of the seeker.

Scott is also an artist, musician and poet, and has traveled the world extensively. He feels his purpose is to be on his spiritual path and to assist others on their path. His teaching is safe and supportive with amusement and integrity.

Krista Morrison

Krista first discovered Lightwork thanks to a tiny poster on Hornby Island. At the time she was practicing yoga and writing a play, but knew she was yearning for her true calling. Something about that little poster spoke to her and she hitchhiked her way to a Lightwork ‘Healing Space’ event. Soon after she did Lightwork Level 1 Meditation and a private reading-healing session with her teacher.

Her love for the practice was so immediate she then packed her bags and moved to Vancouver (despite having no job at the time or place to live) to do Level 2 Meditation. She made her way through several years of intensive training, graduating from the Lightwork Teacher’s program in 2003, and later becoming the first person ever to complete the Apprenticeship program.

Krista’s favourite thing about teaching and giving private healing sessions is helping people tune into themselves as spirit. She’s known for bringing levity to situations that are ‘supposed’ to be serious, and she says that practicing Lightwork meditation has allowed her to transform into the person she always knew she could be.

Prior to Lightwork Krista went to theatre school, became a yoga teacher and received a diploma in clowning.

In addition to teaching and offering private sessions, Krista oversees many aspects of the day-to-day management of Lightwork as the Director of Operations.

Lightwork has provided a structure and a reference point in which to rest while the world rushes around. It has become her touchstone and community.

Julia heads up the production and post production department which is essential in the process of using the media arts to transmit Lightwork's spiritual message.
