one-on-one private instruction and meditation-based coaching
kalyāna mitra (n.), Buddhist term meaning spiritual friend; one who is experienced in meditation and can help guide your practice and support your progress
Working one-on-one can be helpful at every stage of your personal practice, whether you are just beginning your exploration of meditation or have an established practice and are looking for additional support & guidance.
How does this work?
We will begin with a 15-minute introductory meeting to get a better understanding of what your existing practice is like, what your intentions & goals are for working with a teacher, and to figure out how we can best work together.
This is free of charge since we may decide our styles do not mesh or that I am not the best suited instructor for you at this time (in which case, I can always recommend other teachers.) No hard feelings, I promise.
All following sessions are 30 minutes.
This time allows for follow up from previous sessions, a 15-20 minute practice and time for discussing anything that arose during meditation. The basis of these sessions is personal connection, undivided attention & genuine conversation. Each session will look a little different depending on the day & the individual.
Any fine print?
Sessions can be scheduled in advance or as we go. Weekly or bi-weekly sessions are recommended, and we will work together to find the cadence that is most supportive for your practice & your schedule. The frequency with which we meet is entirely up to you.
Payment is required to confirm a session.
There is a 12-hour cancellation window in order to be refunded for your session, in which case we can reschedule for another time. Within 12 hours, sessions are non-refundable.
Where can we practice together?
I am based in New York City, and through the magic of Zoom and FaceTime, you & I can work together from almost anywhere. Remote sessions are always available and are just as legitimate & effective as meeting in person.
If you would like to meet for sessions live and are also based in NYC, we will find a location that is most convenient & comfortable for you. When possible, I recommend in-person sessions and would love to meet you exactly where you are.
How can I book/schedule a session?
Request time for us to meet or book your sessions using bamboo. It's free to create an account.
