Mentoring and Meditation Instruction
Our mentoring and meditation instruction program provides interested meditators one-on-one guidance from experienced practitioners who have had extensive retreat practice as well as strong daily sitting practices.
Some typical reasons a meditation practitioner might want to meet with a mentor might include: wanting to get started with a meditation practice, receiving beginning meditation instructions, getting a refresher on the process of meditation, wanting to develop a specific technique, feeling that you have reached a plateau, being discouraged with progress, or just wanting to discuss your practice with a more experienced person.
Meeting times and places are flexible and will be mutually agreed upon by the participants. There is no explicit fee – mentoring is given in the tradition of dana, or generosity, which means you would make a donation that feels comfortable to you. A donation is not mandatory - no one is turned away because of an inability to donate.
If you are interested in making an appointment for mentoring or instruction please call or email James Coleman at 805-550-6908 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
