Trillium has received meditation instruction, initiations & teachings from many lineages - including Tibetan Buddhist and Classical Tantra, Bön tradition, Vajrayana Dzogchen, Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism, Advaita, Hermetics, and Indian Kriya Yoga. Through direct, long-term, live-in relationships with several of her spiritual teachers, she has received personal guidance in meditation techniques and practical application, spiritual philosophy, pranayama techniques and kundalini management, as well as inner and outer alchemy. She has spent extensive time living in 'retreat'; temple; and ashram settings - including Chogyam Trungpa's Red Feather Lake retreat center in Colorado; Mooji's Sahaja ashram in Portugal; the Shaolin Temple Europe, several Thai vipassana temple settings, as well as Himalayan caves and holy places.
Trillium has close to 10,000 hours of formal 'on cushion' meditation training, which in turn has been incorporated into a moment-to-moment way of 'living'. She has done very many week-, month- , and year-long retreats, often in silence and solitude. Some of them have also been in a dark room setting, sometimes without food and water.
Trillium is one of the select 64 participants of the ‘The Shamatha Project’ - an ongoing 10+ year longitudinal scientific research study which set out to use an extensive multitude of methods to examine the many benefits of meditation on the physical, emotional and mental bodies. The project initiative was invited and inspired by His Holiness The Dalai Lama; and Lama B. Alan Wallace; and Dr Cliff Saron of the Center of Mind and Brain Studies at UC Davis, California who made it come true in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in 2007.

Trillium offers meditation classes and individual transmission sessions to anyone who wishes to embark on, or deepen, access to the higher realms of stillness and peace, to clear their 'causal' body of karmic conditioning, to access highest state of frequency, to connect with their own Soul and other high-frequency beings, and to realize deeply the inner understanding of who they are. Trillium feels that meditation is one of the most powerful means by which we can clear and cleanse mental, emotional and physical conditioning imprints, to become more free and clear, and live a fulfilling and peaceful life guided by our own inner intuitive sense. Meditation is an integral part of any tailor-made program she offers.
From time to time, she assists a Thai nun in Vipassana retreats by holding silent morning yin yoga for the participants. She continues her own deepening and exploration of states of Consciousness.
