“I’ve been struggling to understand how to start with meditation for years. This has been a really profound experience for me and it feels like the start of a whole new path. I am grateful that the virtual format has allowed me to take part despite being in NYC.” Student, 2021

“With the instructor’s guidance I discovered a new dimension to meditation and calm comes instantly in the middle of everything and at anytime. I find that I do not need to “sit quiet” and “do meditation” to find calmness. Thank you Richard for your precise, to the point instructions.” Student, 2021
