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.

Where others see scarcity, learn to see opportunity.

Those who practice the inner arts are not living in some la-la land where the economy and job markets are amazing. We're right here with you, in this world, with all of it's challenges.

Simply, we create an inner strength within our minds, and from this strength we carefully choose what we focus on and what we leave for others to dwell on. From this strength, we choose personal success, and we become strong so we may support others in becoming strong too.

***Pre-pandemic, we were on Cal's campus weekly with many attendees returning weekly. We'll surely return to campus in person if enough Cal students ask for it.***

In this class:

  • Learn to see clearly, free of thoughts that do not serve you
  • Empower your academic life with focus, balance and joy
  • Learn how to enjoy a long, successful career, minus the burn-out
  • Take your current career to a whole new level, or reinvent your career completely
  • Discover a very unique style of meditation that will give power and clarity to your career for years to come

ALL ARE WELCOME

Meditation makes everything in life better, especially career!

“If only people would give meditation a real try, they'd experience directly for themselves how it's an absolute game-changer in life and in career. After all, many of the most successful people on the planet, from athletes to CEOs, meditate regularly. Then, there are all of the MRI studies that show how the brain becomes neuro-plastic, which means it physically changes toward balance and happiness, with short amounts of daily meditation. What the ancients knew more than a few millennia ago is now clearly proven in our modern science. And happy people are more engaged in their work."

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Chitananda has worked for many years as a Software Developer, Project Manager, and CEO & Founder for both Silicon Valley startups as well as some of the largest tech companies in Silicon Valley, California.

Chitananda is also a Career & Spirituality Coach, with a proven record of lifting his people in position, salary and state of mind.

"The ancient Buddhist and Yoga texts have been applied to farm life, monastery life, and family life for millennia. The same teachings are still perfectly relevant to our everyday lives in this tech-driven world with all of its beautiful complexity. In this world, the home office becomes our monastery, our work becomes our offering to humanity, our family life becomes a playground to practice compassion and balance. You see? We are in the perfect time and place to practice the ancient teachings and rise to new heights, both within our minds and in career!"
