“I could go on and on about Yoga Nidra, I often do with my mom and sister:) I just love Sabah! But tonight, she outdid herself with a new class, Recalibrating your Chakras. You gals have to make it next Saturday at 8. It is so AWESOME!! I had to share….. Sean’s event was great as well. He is quite funny. “
“Meditations with Katie have been a lifesaver in this time of uncertainty. The community is uplifting, and Katie’s guidance puts me in the right mindset for the rest of my day and week. I love connecting with others via the Zoom option!”
– Corrine Immel
“Katie’s morning meditations provide me a centering anchor twice a week. The opportunity to join others and sit in peace during these unusual days is soul saving. The world is carrying a troubling load, while the meditations allow an opening to unburden. I am truly grateful for Katie and the BE meditations.”

“Learning to meditate has proven to be some of the most valuable time I’ve ever spent. Meditation has offered and expanded transformational elements in my life: my relationships, the way I live, how I see the world. It aids in my ability to de-stress, remain calm, prioritize, and focus. Katie is amazing, compassionate, and supportive in offering her gift to guide you through each meditation with her in person or virtually.”
~ Shannon Harris
”BE Meditation’s Tuesday-Thursday meditation session has replaced my morning commute with serenity. The sessions are thoughtfully prepared and facilitated. There is enough structure for beginners while encouraging others further along the mindfulness path to follow their intuition. I leave each meditation feeling grounded, focused, with all of my creative energies ready to be accessed.”
~ Lenora Edwards
“Graham’s session was so worthwhile – it’s the extra edge I need for my demanding workday. He’s great with understanding and guiding visualization and connecting values and what is important to me, motivating! The breakout sessions were especially valuable – working with others in different professions and businesses was helpful and refreshing. With COVID and all the virtual work being done these days, you need the extra support and connection that Be Meditation and Graham provide.”
~ Victor Smith
“Thank you, you are AMAZING! I just finished telling others that had difficulties that kept them from joining how wonderful this experience was. I am relaxed and truly grateful for this experience… May your gifts continue to make room for you! I am looking forward to more experiences. I am grateful to have been connected to such a great safe space of equally wonderful people.”

As an occasional reader of Buddhist literature, for years I’ve been wanting to have a daily meditation practice. Seifu’s “Be Zen” class has been the perfect catalyst for me. His kindness, knowledge, and eagerness to share Zen meditation and Buddhism has been infectious. I now have an (almost) daily meditation practice that provides me with calmness and mindfulness, helping me navigate these trying times.
