What you'll do

"great for groups"
"great for team-building"
"contact me for a new date".

In this online experience, I start by sharing 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 six years, welcoming nearly 8,000 guests.

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

I booked this session for my cousin as a Christmas present as he is very interested in Japanese culture, meditation and religion. He loved the session and said that it was the best Air Bnb experience he has ever attended.

It was such a pleasure to be a part of his session the other day. If you have any interest in learning about meditation, he breaks it down perfectly and shows the best way to begin practicing yourself. He is right there with you the entire time. Thank you for the experience, and thank you for keeping it affordable to us all!

I'd make two suggestions: 1) I'd indicate that much of it is a chanting meditation, which is different that what some may be use to. 2) I'd indicate up front what you are chanting. As a Christian, I was uncomfortable with the expectation to chant to/about Buddha for 20 minutes, as I'm sure Buddhist would be to chant to Christ for 20 mins. Had I have known this in the notes, I would not have purchased. Yes, it's a buddhist monk, but many people can lead a mediation session neutrally.

Expect introduction from participants, Q&A, the history and background on meditation and then 20 min of chanting and 10 min of deep breathing. I experienced a 15 bpm drop in my heart rate after the class and felt very relaxed. I would recommend having a glass of water nearby for the chanting and deep breathing.

I gifted this experience to my brother-in-law, who writes: "It was a delight to join Suzuki-san in meditation. His good humor and beaming smile almost makes you forget that you are meeting virtually (almost). He helped me start my day a little more mindfully :) " Kuniatsu was so kind and helpful in communications about this gift. I really appreciate it, and hope to try the experience myself one day! Thank you!
