WE RISE Vishoka Meditation®


What is WE RISE?

WE RISE is a 28-day Guided Group Meditation Practice with an international community of meditators dedicated to receiving the promises of Vishoka Meditation®.



Experience Vishoka Meditation®

The heart of Vishoka Meditation® is a technique that is spiritually-grounded, yet highly systematic and experiential. But Vishoka Meditation® is more than technique—it is a living practice supported by a rich body of wisdom, refined over countless generations for thousands of years.


Imagine a life free from pain and sorrow—infused with joy and tranquility.

The ancient yogis called this state vishoka, and insisted that we all can reach it. The key is a precise set of meditative techniques designed to unite mind and breath, and turn them inward.

WE RISE is an immersive experience of Vishoka Meditation® designed to support you in community, while simultaneously empowering you to gain independence in your practice. It is an offering from my heart. Join us for the journey within.



The Himalayan Tradition

The meditation techniques shared in WE RISE have been preserved and passed down through the Himalayan Tradition. Simultaneously simple and profound, they are accessible for all levels of practitioner. Their impact, effectiveness, and depth develop exponentially with quality, consistency and devotion in practice. This system is known as Vishoka Meditation.


We will approach this practice gently and systematically, honoring the intention of the Himalayan Tradition, of which I am a devotee. This particular system of meditation is based in our experience of the 'real' or external world, and employs an effortless approach for developing sensitivity to accept the invitation of joyful surrender, a return home to the internal world. Through these techniques, we will develop a worldview which is hopeful, powerful, purposeful, transformative and transcendent.

Certified Vishoka Meditation Teacher


Accompanying each recorded practice is an excerpt from Yoga Sutra 1:36, the primary source of Vishoka Meditation (along with the Lotus Sutras and the Shiva Sutras). Sutra 1:36 is the heart of the Yoga Sutras, as well as Sri Vidya, the golden thread that runs through the tapestry of the Himalayan Tradition. It is a treasure one can spend lifetimes discovering.
