What you'll do

In this online experience, I start by sharing the story behind how and why I became a Buddhist monk and about my meditation practice. Next, we’ll do two types of meditation together.

First is a chanting mantra for 20 minutes. This type of meditation allows you to go deep into your practice. Next we will do a 10-minute breathing-out meditation. Afterwards, you’ll share your questions and reflections on the practice.

I am also happy to offer other meditations, such as meditation with a candle or mirror, Qigong, Sutra copying, and counting meditation, one of the basic Zen practices.

I've been a Buddhist monk for nearly 20 years. I worked in Shitennoji Temple for 12 years as a monk, doing zen meditation. I have been doing guided meditations for Airbnb guests for five years, welcoming nearly 4,000 guests.

I believe meditation is one of the best ways for people to find a better life via a healthy body and mind.

Kuniatsu was great. So friendly, funny, and engaging. I haven't felt this relaxed in months. He engaged our whole team and led us on a great meditative experience. Highly recommend!

This is a really awesome experience! It was interesting to learn new meditation techniques. Both my husband and I felt like we were in a deep state of relaxation and peace at the end. Kuniatsu is a wonderful teacher. I highly recommend this experience!

1時間程度の瞑想で、とてもよかったです。そもそも何で唱えるのか、なぜ息に気を使うのか、思考をコントロールする必要性などについてお話の後、みんなで瞑想。一人でやるとどうしても気が散るのですが、オンラインで一緒にやると、説明だけではなく強制力が発生するのでとても集中できました。楽しかったです!!

This was a fun experience in which I was able to try chanting meditation for the first time. I did struggle to find zen moments given the online experience but I enjoyed hearing the explanations on what is important for meditating.

This was one of a kind experience. In the beginning, it felt a little bit strange but the atmosphere was really friendly and after a couple of minutes I could feel how open my soul become to go deep in this experience and I really enjoyed it. Thanks Kuniatsu :)
