How to Meditate While Interacting with Your Dog or Cat – Using Shinzen Young’s Unified Mindfulness Techniques

During the pandemic, 12 million American households added a dog to the family. Countless more are adopting mindfulness practices to help with stress and anxiety. Can these two be combined? Absolutely!


Many believe meditation is difficult. Our mind wanders. We get distracted. Following our breath can be boring.


Try meditating with your dog or cat? It’s easy. It’s fun. Best of all, it is wonderfully rewarding. Dogs and cats crave attention. They are continually seeking it. When we open to them, it can be wondrously gratifying and blissful.


This fun and whimsical online class will show you how to apply proven meditation techniques and strategies, in stillness or motion, during the time you spend with your canine or feline buddies.


This class will make you more joyful! Mindful attention significantly elevates the quality of sensory experience increasing clarity, aliveness, satisfaction, and fulfillment. You can use it to have richer, more profound experiences with your pet. For example: love, play, connection, affirmation, companionship, flow, and happiness.


These 60-minute programs are designed for everyone – from beginners to advanced meditators.
