Meditate.io Teacher Meetings present an opportunity for you to share about your practice, ask questions, and get a trained perspective on what you're going through. The purpose of these meetings are to catalyze, speeding up & smoothing out, the process of discovery that you're currently in.
"Emily and Vince's one-on-one conversations are gulps of fresh air for my practice. Over time, I've relied on their dynamic perspectives to help me navigate through questions and obstacles as they come up, so I can dive back into the practice again with new insights."
- Kuan Luo, New York City
We need both honest feedback & loving support in order to develop. During one-on-one meetings we’ll work on trusting what’s arising, so that we can use it as a gateway to greater understanding. Through honest conversation you’ll receive heartfelt responses to your thought process, suggestions on different meditation techniques to try, and an opportunity to work through stuck emotions.
Emily Horn develops programs and support structures for people dedicated to living a wholehearted life in the modern world. She's authorized to teach meditation by Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Insight Meditation Society, and InsightLA. Emily was personally mentored by Jack Kornfield, P.h.D and Trudy Goodman, P.h.D. She's also worked in various contemplative education environments including Buddhist Geeks and is now the co-founder of Heart of Insight Community. Emily has been called a "power player of the mindfulness movement" by Wired Magazine. For her, the spiritual journey is simply learning to dance with all of this human experience: from transcendence to dirty dishes, evolutionary edges to ancient roots, solitary practice to deepening relationships. She lives in Asheville, NC with her husband and son.
"I’ve been very fortunate to be able to work with Emily for the last few years. Her intuitive advice has gotten me through countless hurdles and I often leave our meetings with new and challenging ways to explore my own experience. Emily’s teachings have been truly valuable and she’s been a crucial part in the development of my practice."

"I've been fortunate enough to work with Vince one on one for the last few years. He has always encouraged me when I needed it and gently, and with good humor, prodded me when I got complacent. I keep working with him because he helps me make my own discoveries and find my own path."

"Choosing to work with Emily and Vince was one of the best decisions I've ever made around the development of my meditation practice. Their combined experience and knowledge of the various approaches to meditation is comprehensive and their approach to teaching provides unusually varied styles of practice from which the student can freely choose."
