Can meditation improve your health? As a meditator for over 20 years, I can personally testify that I think it does. As a reviewer of research on the subject, the conclusion seems to undoubtedly be that it does. As a health practitioner (Doctor of Chiropractor) I think it makes a tremendous amo...

What Is, Is What you Really Want

"Be present." We have all heard this before, but what does it mean? To me, it means that only in the present can we experience what IS. What is? Yes, what is is not the past and not the future! The past does not exist and so, nor does its seeming content of inc...

Nels has a way of teaching and explaining meditation in such an easy to understand manner. I found my two sessions with him incredibly impactful. He taught me several techniques that help me practice meditation. My lessons with him taught me a profound new tool that I will have the rest of my life. Highly recommend him!

I would highly recommend this if you are at all interested in learning meditation techniques. I arrived as an absolute beginner but left feeling well armed to utilize mantra meditation. The structure of the two session intro (day one, learn and practice the method; day two a week later, returning and sharing how things went to get additional feedback and guidance) was very effective. A good mix of theory and concept with practicality.

This was a great class by Nels, and I have felt immediate benefits since taking the class. I have a lot of stress and activity that I am dealing with in my life right now, but with the mantra meditation it has helped me remain more calm and focused. He did a great job of explaining our thought process, and how meditation can help stop us from getting stuck within negative cycles. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of meditation.

Certified Meditation Instructor

Pure Meditation exists to bring the community the opportunity to learn basic and advanced techniques in the life-enhancing and affirming practice of meditation.

Pure Meditation, the school, was born from the instruction received from my teacher, Hans van Latenstein. Hans, the originator of “Authentic Meditation”, developed this method as a way to make meditation available to all, regardless of one’s religious or philosophical beliefs. Hans states, “It is harmonious and compatible with everyone’s background because it doesn’t require new beliefs to practice it.”

Hans has taught and been instructed in many forms of meditation all over the globe. He created this method by drawing together the best qualities of his favorite meditation techniques. This technique is similar to the most well-known meditation methods such as Mindfulness-based meditation and Transcendental Meditation. However, Pure Meditation is completely unaffiliated with any particular religion and does not use religious language, words, or phrases to be repeated or chanted.

I am very excited to offer the community this training! I’ve been meditating for over twenty years now. The rewards, emotionally and physically, have been tremendous! Of all my personal interests and pursuits, meditation has provided immeasurable benefits.
