"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally."

Meditation Teachers 

finals (59 of 144).jpg

The Meditation teachers and leaders at O2 understand meditation because we meditate.  It is impossible to predict the profound ways in which meditation can change your life until you make meditation a part of your life.  Everyone can meditate, and we can help you find a practice that is just for you.
