Jeff Cannon will provide you with an introduction to meditation and mindfulness from his studio in New York City or online if you cannot travel. He will teach you the fundamentals to weaving traditional meditation techniques together so that you can create a meditation practice that works for you and on your terms.

He provides personalized, one-on-one instruction to give you everything you need to apply meditation to your life on your first day. You will learn to turn your breath into a powerful tool and to enjoy your new-found ability to calm yourself through the chaos in your world.

As your skills develop you will quickly find the time to enjoy greater kinship and community with your family and friends as you discover a level of attention and focus you never knew existed.

Jeff’s introduction to meditation will teach you more than just how to meditate, he will give you the techniques that form the core to the Simple Truth Method to Meditation and to the life you want to live

Meditation is a wonderful practice. It dates back to almost 2,500 years. It carries some astonishing truths and provides powerful insights. But, it is almost 2,500 years old. It was created for a world that simply does not exist today, and not for the realities of the 21st century world you face.

The philosophy at the core of meditation is still as relevant as it has ever been.  The ideas of compassionand loving kindness have never been needed more than they are today. But the teachings and techniques of most lineages do not always fit with the realities of the world you live in.

The beauty of Modern Meditation is that it teaches you how to weave traditional meditation techniques together to deliver a practice that works with your world and your life, rather than forcing you to change your life to fit the technique of whatever lineage you are trying to fit into.

When meditation was first introduced there were no cell phones, there were no quarterly earnings or 401Ks to worry about. Life was simple. The scope of your world was the village you lived in. Your primary concern was did you have enough food to get you past the winter or through the monsoon season.
Today, you have a global view of the world’s problems brought instantly to your doorstep. You are aware of what is going on across the world. You know you have to save for retirement, whenever that will come…

Modern Meditation was refined with an understanding that you should not have to change your life to bring meditation in to your life.

When you learn to layer such methods as Vipassanna, Samatha, Pranayama, Zen, Vedic and others, you will discover a practice that you can take off your cushion and bring it into your life no matter what the world throws at you. It will work for you and for your mind on your terms.

As Jeff wrote in his 2010 book The Simple Truth: Meditation for the Modern World, meditation is not an alternative to a nap. It is not about floating on a Nirvanic cloud. It is a focused approach to understanding and managing your thoughts and your emotions. It is a tool that helps you to be aware of the quality of your thoughts so that you can let them go when you want to.

When you learn to do that in a safe, environment you will be able to do that anywhere and any time in the real world you live in. You will be able to take an active role in your life in a deeper, healthier, more passionate way.

You do not need to change your life, nor should you have to fit into someone else’s idea of what your practice should be. You can work with a community of people who understand the realities of today’s world to develop a practice that is right for your life, on your terms.

Meditation is a simple practice. It is also a powerful one. It will help you overcome 40,000 years of wiring and a lifetime of programming that is now holding you back. It will help you live your life, your way.

Let us show you how to sit properly and experience the difference that Modern Meditation can make.

Modern Meditataiton is not a monastic practice.

We are a non-ecumenical group that does not follow any fixed faith – Buddhist, Christian, Muslim or Judaism – we simply want to provide you with the foundation for a practice you can take with you to strengthen your own faith and become the best person you can be.

While we do ask that you enjoy in a Basic Meditation session, we do not ask you to make a commitment. We want to give you a foundation from which to enjoy the gifts our advanced sessions can provide to meet your individual needs.

In your first session you will learn to meditate – sometimes that is enough. After this we encourage you to proceed on your own and in whatever way you think best. We simply want to open the door to help you choose the best path for you to travel on.

The Simple Truth Project is here to help you settle into your meditation practice on a different level – your level.

Our Basic Meditation session will teach you to meditate, and for some that is enough. For those that want more there are Advanced Programs, but without the solid foundation our Basic Meditation provides they may find themselves lost and stuck on their cushion, unable to proceed.

We simply want to ensure that you learn to apply your practice to the very real issues that you will inevitably face in today’s world.

Strategy for Happiness

Happiness is not a cloud you walk into. It is the result of bringing key aspects of your life into balance through meditation.

Everybody is different, we all know this. Your Simple Truth is unlike anybody else’s. Our approach to Modern Meditation will create the right balance for you through an effective and proven approach.

We can help you create a path to simplify your life and give you the focused calm you need for the happiness you deserve.  Learn to create a life that supports your own Simple Truth and you will enjoy a richer, deeper, more passionate and more rewarding life than you ever thought possible.

This is a a guided program that incorporates meditation, one on one discussions, as well as guided self-exploration, so that you can identify the most important areas of your life and design a road map for your happiness that will remain long after the sessions stop.

Find Your Balance

The gap that exists between where you are and where you should be is why you feel off-balance. Burning yourself out is not the answer to filling that gap. Balancing the transition you are in will. If you want more balance in your life, you simply need to be comfortable with the imbalance that is what it is to be a human in the modern world.

What follows is a mindful approach to discovering the balance that is within you. We can help you find your own Simple Truth and discover the balance what lies between what is and what will be. In this short program, we will also teach you how to stay true to yourself during your transition.
Learn to overcome the self-defeating habits and limiting beliefs that keep you from being at peace with every step of your journey. Erase the fear that is holding you back from your dreams and bypass the ego that drives you to make the wrong choices instead of what you know is the right one.
It is time to find your balance in a new and limitless belief system.

Simplify and Thrive

Life is complicated, but it doesn’t have to be.

Learn to simplify your life without making it too simple. This does not come by getting rid of everything in your life. It comes from removing those things that do not support your Simple Truth and your authentic self. It is called curating your life, and once you learn to do this, you will take the biggest step you have ever taken, no matter where you are in life or where you want to go.

Steps to Enlightenment

This is an advanced program for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

Based on Jeff’s book, The Conversation: Your Guide to Transcendence, this program is created for those who want to take your meditation practice to the next level.

It will help you expand your awareness and engage your consciousness so that you can recognize and grow as you begin to recognize the moments of enlightenment that happen every day – often without your even being aware of them.
