Meditation practice is one way to restore our minds to a more calm and peaceful state so that we can function more freely in the world and realize our deeper goals and purpose in life. Developing a meditation practice can be challenging, which is why it is helpful to work directly one-on-one with a meditation teacher. Seth provides detailed instruction in seated meditation posture, based on his experience as a yoga teacher, and gives instruction in meditation techniques based on his practice of Buddhist meditation.
Reiki & Healing
"Reiki", a Japanese word often translated as "Universal Life Force", is a gentle but powerful healing modality that works closely with the subtle energies in the body. Blockages in the flow of energy result from conditions like stress, anxiety, injury, or trauma, and can gradually be given encouraged to move and allow energy to circulate. This unblocking may affect us not only on an energetic level, but also may result in an enhancement of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states of being. After a session, you may feel more ease, freedom, and a sense of being more "in-tune" with yourself.
