What we're about

We begin with a short meditation. Then a short talk about the Dharma (tr. "The Path" / "The Way"), followed by a slightly longer meditation. You may ask questions after class if you like. In 3 classes, I give you all you need to set up a consistent and bright home meditation practice for yourself (including a free gift on each of your first 3 classes).

This class is for you if:
• You want to be successful in your career, studies and/or athletics
• You need a way out of career burn-out
• You simply want more balance in your daily life and relationships
• You want to feel happy a lot more often!
• You want to relish in life in all of its FULLNESS, unobscured by heavy thinking mind
• You truly want to give to others... Being bright and balanced, especially in the most difficult situations, puts you in a unique position to be of service to others.

You worked hard to get into Cal. That's amazing! Congratulations! You have your entire future ahead of you, but wait... there's just one thing... maybe two things... - Stress - Test anxiety - Maybe you're burned-out on your career before you've even started it - Or you're frozen in indecision - Fear around getting a decent job when you graduate and then keeping it - And add Covid and wildfires to it all, and what?! Buddhism, as Chitananda practices it, is more of a psychology than a religion, informing the mindset we bring to every situation in daily life, and the meditation that empowers our days. Buddhism is a state of mind you bring to your exams, classes, and to your career. In this state, there is no room for fear, anxiety, self-pity, confusion, etc. In this state, there is only room for intent... intent for clear decision making, optimism, and personal empowerment. Easier said than done, true. But hey, you have you're entire future ahead of you, let's start building this inner 'muscle' now ;) Simply connect via Zoom at 6:25pm https://zoom.us/j/229910995 Etiquette is very important for meditation webinars: - Be 5 mins early or on time - more than 5 mins late is disruptive to the class. - Tidy your space, no distractions, no eating, etc. - No one casually listening in - Bring the same focus as you would bring to class in person - Camera on please. Seeing each other fosters trust and a sense of community. If you're super psychically sensitive, message Chitananda or let him know at the beginning of class - he is happy to accommodate you. ---- ALL ARE WELCOME This class is geared toward students and young professionals. All are welcome. Beginners and experienced meditation practitioners alike. Religious and non-religious. People of all walks of life who want to learn to touch True Self through meditation and mindfulness. WHAT TO EXPECT We begin with a short meditation. Then a short talk about the Dharma (tr.

ABOUT THE TEACHER Born in California, Chitananda has been on the path for 15 years under the guidance of extraordinarily bright, heart-centered teachers in a rich school of Buddhism. He attributes his success in academics, athletics and career to his daily home meditation practice. In fact, meditation is his favorite thing, because it's the one thing that gives to all the other things he loves (career success, SCUBA, Martial Arts, etc.). And he loves sharing it with all sincere students. Chitananda has applied the teachings in everyday modern life, right here in the Bay Area for years, in several arenas, as a... - Software Engineer at a major company in S.F. (current) - Businessman (prior career) - Martial Artist in a few styles (hard and soft) - SCUBA diver - Student @ Cal (gr. 2006) WHY IS THIS CLASS FREE? From Chitananda: 'Eternity "pays" me well to teach. I feel deep in my heart that I'm receiving something far greater than money when I share the teachings with others. Come, try, meditate and laugh with me.'
