Secular and Human Practices

Being human is the only requirement to practice meditation with The Field. Outdated cultural and sectarian distortions sometimes deter people from meditation practice. We aspire to encourage the simple practice of honoring embodiment and stillness.

The Field aims to provide training, community, and the demystification of basic contemplative practices. We use science-based methods that produce happier, healthier lives. We offer a range of class options, retreats, and offsite services to cultivate options for a spectrum of meditation practitioners.

Practical Breathwork Instruction

Private individual breathwork sessions offer an effective means to explore the subconscious and historic habits of resistance and closure. These sessions are a powerfully impactful method to support somatic healing, emotional catharsis, joy, and creative inspiration. The goal is to promote changes in the nervous system that transition from temporary altered states to enduring altered traits.

Breathwork meditation and emobodied immediacy practice offers an opportunity to delve into the root causes of emotional turmoil and to implement strategies that instill confidence that our distress is workable. The confluence of posture, breath, and visualization is an arena where we can challenge habitual ways of framing our experience.

Breathwork sessions offer an opportunity to engage with unconditional embodiment, clarity, and open-hearted awareness.

Meditation for Financial Market Participants

A key challenge for those working in the complex world of financial markets is to enhance their ability to consciously tolerate complexity while concurrently making impactful decisions based on choice, not compulsion.

Together, we'll design a system to address the recurring trading challenges that often overwhelm and discourage traders. By tapping into self-knowledge, neuroscience, and access to your gut intuition, I'll assist you in sharpening and applying your unique market edge. Part of the work is to surface and discipline patterns of self-sabotage and replace neurotic habits with a commitment to what is actually arising in immediate experience.

Heart-Opening Meditation

When we lead with an open heart, we may find that kindness towards our vulnerabilities is greatly magnified. Is there a more meaningful practice than learning to cooperate with the world around us? To fluidly move through our changes? As our heart softens, we find that we are kinder to ourselves, and that attitude is then extended to the vast network of energies and beings surrounding us.

Visualization Practice

Humans have an incredible capacity for visual cognition and imagination. Instead of using our prized imaginative faculty to imagine personal or global disaster, let us try to tame this superpower and put it to work on our behalf.

Meditation Check-In

Whether you are using an app to pace your daily practice or you are a full-blown yogi, a check-in with an experienced colleague or mentor can make all the difference!

Field teachers continually point you back to fundamental immediacy when you feel stuck, obsessed with a method, or just plain burnt out.

Ego process can turn almost anything into a stale routine. Return to freshness and chat with someone who recognizes your intrinsic goodness.

Social Meditation

Social meditation provides a built-in feedback loop. When people take turns reporting their experiences in real-time, the mind is less likely to wander. Meditators engage with each other, which provides an opportunity for interactivity and connection. This sense of familiar discourse increases the efficiency of meditation training and gentle vigilance.

Solitary meditation practice requires that a considerable amount of time is lost to mind wandering and investigation of one's doubt. The long-term effects of observing and dismantling patterns of rumination, worry, planning, fantasy, and sleeping are constructive; however, social meditation methods provide an intuitive gateway to mindfulness practice. An added positive element of this method is the friendly accountability of working as a group.

Walking meditation

We walk and use our eyes while lightly maintaining awareness of our cognizance. This is a method of activating panoramic vision, or optic flow. We dilate our gaze to see far into the periphery—above, below, and to the sides. This mode of vision releases a mechanism in the brain stem involved in vigilance and arousal, reducing stress.
