"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.

This was a great interactive experience. Kuniatsu makes you feel safe during discussion and mutes during the mantra (which was something I was stressing about, so that was nice). He’s also a funny character who is great at communicating. Very happy with my experience.

This meditation experience was better than I expected: Suzuki San was very funny, he taught chanting in an animated way with a lot of facial expressions that were unexpected on Zoom, and the chanting and meditative experience were invigorating and relaxing at the same time. Try it out if you have never done a Zoom meditation before!

This was an amazing virtual experience! Kuniatsu was so kind and thoughtful about explaining chanting and meditation. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking about giving it a try.

This was a super cool experience! I'd never experience chanting like this before. I loved how Kuniatsu explained the purpose of the chanting and shared a historical/scientific example of the power of it. He also explained the importance of breathing out to help settle our emotions. I also enjoyed learning about this history with Airbnb and how he's had to pivot due to COVID. Well done! Thank you for the special journey.

Organized this for a team bonding and really enjoyed the experience with Suzuki-san. He was really good at explaining and made it very a light hearted session.

Very unique experience! I've learned a new meditation technique and got some useful tips that will use in my daily practice. Also, Coonie is a very friendly guy and a great instructor.
