A Chat with NYC Meditator
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
NYC Meditator offers a range of meditation classes (including our comprehensive introduction to meditation, tailored 1 on 1 programs, and partner meditation, to name a few). Unlike many other meditation groups, NYC Meditator teaches meditation in a modern, scientific, and no-nonsense way.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Many meditation groups teach their practices in a religious or overly spiritual way which turns off many people. NYC Meditator was designed in response to teach meditation in a rigorous and scientific way to the modern professional, while maintaining the essence of ancient practices.
What do you love most about your job?
The opportunity to help people achieve peak performance states is by far the biggest reward of running NYC Meditator. I also love being able to teach timeless meditation practices (like Zazen) with a different spin, such as relating it to theoretical physics and philosophies like Stoicism.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
When I finished the "Introduction to Meditation" class, I was filled with this feeling of warmth towards everything, like I was a part of it and it was a part of me. Much deeper than the high one gets after a night of going out drinking. Jim O'Donnell
