Fifteen years ago, Marsha Power was depressed. Seven of her employees at Garbo, A Salon & Spa, had died of AIDS. Both of her parents, several uncles and even her dog had died, too. When her long-term romantic relationship ended, she felt like she had lost it all. “I broke,” she says. “I became hopeless.”

Then a friend suggested that she try meditation. Power explains, “I went to a class out of pure boredom, had absolutely no interest. My heart was very heavy, and this lady told us to get into this quiet place of silence. I had never ever shut off my brain. She said, ‘If you can hear the car honking outside, you’re not there; if you can hear the wind blow, you’re not there.’ Then all of a sudden, I got into this space, and there was nothing.” Power’s heart started vibrating. “It was like I was in love, and I was high for three days,” she says.
