"I feel reconnected with the real me, my true nature. I remember who I was before my family, teachers, friends, culture and society told me and taught me to be someone different.For this I’m forever grateful ❤️🙏"
“I had trouble making time for meditation and when I did, had a hard time getting into a mindful state.
I now actively look forward to my meditation time”
Having trained in a formal yogic/Eastern tradition, I didn't have the luxury of asking random questions of my teachers... it was more an education of "acceptance." You have made the experience more common-sense and human. Thank you.
What is the SkillfulMeans Community?
We developed the SkillfulMeans Community after seeing the growing need for an open mindfulness community where people from different traditions with different teachers can come together and share insights, questions and support each other on their path to greater wellbeing.
This platform is divided into a few different sections:
In the "Meet Our Teachers" space you will find all sorts of podcasts, videos, free meditation recordings etc. to help you get starting with practicing and applying meditation
I would highly recommend joining and checking out our "Free Challenges". These are week-long opportunities to dive into or refresh a meditation practice.
Program Groups (Mini Sanghas)
Check out all the free community events you can join!
Insight Hour is an open drop-in community class from SkillfulMeans led by William Jackson PsyD Psychologist and former Buddhist monk.
In this weekly class, we practice mindfulness-based meditation together, explore relationship dynamics and habits that help us become more mindful. The relaxed atmosphere of the class includes meditation practice, conversations and scientific and traditional teachings.
This is a virtual community donation-based meditation class.

Ocean Beach Sangha with Brother Dave Kenneally
The word “Sangha” can be translated as community. We practice mindfulness together in order to live a life of love and understanding. I call that a FAMILY.
Not just that person who’s read a million books on meditation, has a zen chime doorbell, and green tea scented chapstick. It’s for YOU.
Date: Join us via Zoom on the 1st Sunday of Every Month
