Meditation promotes a sense of clarity, calm and presence that illuminates our experience, cultivates compassion, and helps refine skillful action in the world.  Instruction in meditation includes support with how to sit, what to focus on, and exploration of common benefits and obstacles encountered through practice.  Keely Rakushin’s teaching is informed by her study in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition of the White Plum lineage of Taizan Maezumi Roshi with her teachers Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, and Roshi Joan Halifax, and her extensive engagement with yoga.
