All the literature on psychedelic preparation and integration suggests the same thing: meditate, meditate, meditate. But how? What sort of meditation practice is really going to set us up for psychedelic success, and what will help us ground and center afterwards? Let’s answer these questions with practice. Join Daniel for meditation instruction and practice designed to create a resilient and clear mental state that support psychedelic sanity. We’ll learn a practice, then practice it, and finally have a discussion and q & a about what it was like, and how to keep our practice going.

Our meditation practice will support:

  • Cultivating an attitude of peacefulness in difficult situations
  • Developing loving kindness that heals our wounded shadow aspects
  • Seeing clearly to dispel mental confusion
  • Building concentration and focus
  • Increased connection with other meditators and psychonauts
  • Probably four or five other things, too

After a profound and intense awakening experience in 1998, Daniel dove deep into his yoga and meditation practice to stabilize his realization in his body and the world. He began teaching in 2002, and took over leadership of his neighborhood yoga studio in 2004. He?s directed several teacher training programs and taught on the faculty of even more. Once, he taught vedic mythology at an online wiccan theological seminary in second life. Daniel ?Sitaram Das? Shankin has dedicated his life to the cultivation of clarity, resilience, and heart. With the recognition that our true nature is vast and generous, wise, he strives to serve his clients in finding their own innate goodness and boundless strength. He currently offers leadership coaching with a heavy emphasis on mindfulness and somatics, and is based in Marin County.
