Mindfulness & Meditation Groups

Weekly Drop-in Sessions

Myndtree offers weekly drop-in Mindfulness and Meditation sessions in the Palo Alto area. These sessions offer a space for participants to pause, meditate, reflect and share. We use the hour to meditate, explore mindfulness and compassion practices, and reflect on a different theme each week to bring clarity to and freedom from some everyday challenges we face in our lives.

Introduction to Mindfulness

6-Week Series for Adults

Over a period of six weeks, participants in this series will be introduced to the powerful and beneficial practices of meditation and mindfulness in a systematic manner. At the end of the six-weeks, participants will not only have learned the skills, but will also be offered tips and tools to establish a regular practice, one that will enrich their lives in the years to come.



"Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world."

Mindful Parenting

6-8 Week Series for Parents

In this series, parents are introduced to the practices of mindfulness, meditation, nonviolent communication and empathy. These practices help parents bring a level of conscious awareness into their interactions with their children, and transform their relationships from one of stress, control, manipulation and conflict to one of ease, understanding, connection and love.

Private Mentoring Sessions

For Personal Healing and Growth

In these sessions, Gayathri weaves her intuition, spiritual insights and knowledge of mindfulness, meditation, nonviolent communication (NVC), breath and movement to help her clients gain freedom from aspects of themselves that are keeping them from living a fuller, more joyful and authentic life.

Contemplative Study Group

Bhagavad Gita

Gayathri leads a weekly contemplative study group on the Bhagavad Gita. The group spends the first half hour of the session in a guided meditation followed by a reading and discussion of the English translation and commentary by Guru Nitya Chaitanya Yati. The discussions are lively, thoughtful and insightful and make these ancient teachings relevant to our everyday lives. Regular participants have found these sessions to be deeply transformative. Sessions are free and new participants are welcome!
