Meditation Instruction in Oakland
In this modern age, with wide accessibility to spiritual teachings, it can be easy to focus our attention on an accumulation of new beliefs, instead of a true willingness to rest into the depths of the unknown. A lot of our behavior is connected to an instinct to control our experiences and yet it is when we relinquish control that we are able to connect with deeper meaning for ourselves and an easier flow in everyday life
Meditation is a gentle and powerful resting place from which we can practice letting go and encounter the truth about who and what we are.
When we sit quietly and allow our attention to come onto what is happening in the present moment, we have the opportunity to actually meet reality. Our health is greatly enriched by this very natural movement.
Meditation is practiced for many reasons and can have profound spiritual, physical, and psychological benefits. Regular meditation practice has been scientifically shown to:
Promote emotional health
Helps relieve pain and suffering
Increase emotional intelligence
Generate deeper states of compassion
Lengthen attention span
Reduce age-related memory loss
Help reduce addictive behavior
The meditation I teach does not demand perfection! It is a gentle practice that anyone can do. Meditation is not always easy but you do not need to be “good at meditating” to receive its benefits. A little bit can go a long way. It can also lead to states of great spaciousness and bliss!
I offer private and group meditation instruction in my office in the East Bay in Oakland, CA, and in your event space.
