About Us

 

Greg Schweitzer, MBA., D. Ay.

Greg, the founder and director of Stress Reduction Resources, experienced his life change significantly in 1974 when he enrolled in a meditation course in his hometown of Reading, PA.  At the time, he was a young, overwhelmed and anxious Industrial Engineer working for one of the world’s largest food companies. Within days of adding a short meditation practice to his daily routine, his life noticeably improved.  Happiness, enthusiasm, focus, energy, and sense of purpose returned to his life.

Two years after he began to meditate, Greg decided to learn how to teach this self-care practice to others.  He enrolled in an extensive year-long training program and became a teacher of the iconic meditation practice that he learned, Transcendental Meditation®.  He did not realize how substantially this decision would impact his life.  Helping others through his meditation teaching became his life-long vocation.

In the first seventeen years of his teaching career, Greg taught Transcendental Meditation at several centers in the Northeast U.S. including the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center in Lancaster, MA.  While at that center, under the clinical direction of Deepak Chopra, M.D., he met and taught an amazing array of international clients from students to celebrities and world leaders.

Twenty+ years ago, Greg left the international organization that teaches TM® and began teaching a meditation technique that he calls Effortless Meditation™.  His private and group meditation programs are offered in several locations.  Instruction is also available remotely by FaceTime and Skype, all under the auspices of Stress Reduction Resources, an organization he established in 1994.

During his 35+ years as an instructor of meditation, Greg has introduced thousands to the benefits of the practice.   His passion for teaching is driven by the changes that he’s seen in his life and in the lives of those who attend his classes.  His client list includes people from all backgrounds: students, employees, executives, retirees, organizations of all sizes, physician-referred patients, and celebrities such as George Harrison of the Beatles and best-selling author, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.

Karen Schweitzer

 I have explored and studied in various fields of human development, always seeking to improve myself and live an optimal life. With a wide range of career experiences in the body/mind field, I have been a student of personal growth and the life coaching process for years. In 2009  I took early retirement from a successful career as a family counselor at an addiction center to live in harmony with my own inner values. My goal is to help and support you in doing the same.

I enjoy sharing what I’ve learned with others, and continue to celebrate learning as I know there is still much more to experience. Although I have a number of certifications and degrees, my 40 years of life experience is the most valuable knowledge I bring to each session.

I hold group and one-on-one classes in my Berks County Office, as well as facilitate coaching sessions over the phone. The co-creative work that we do together will bring powerful results whether in person or over distance. I want to help you on your journey.
