Hi I’m Galya Segal and I love guiding people into a state of relaxed presence. Would you like to join me? Right now, I am offering one-on-one coaching, customized group workshops and on-site corporate wellness meditation.
Since the age of 14, I have been studying and practicing meditation, logging over 6,000 hours of training at the feet of qualified masters. I maintain a rigorous personal practice which continues to deepen every day. The lineage holders Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Anam Thubten Rinpoche and Gyatrul Rinpoche provide inspiration, guidance and supervision of this practice. Toward the end of his lifetime, Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, Z”L, also took me under his wing, providing very personal spiritual advice and teaching. From these masters, I received inconceivable blessings. I aspire to share the wealth as an expression of gratitude.
I enjoy facilitating sessions to help reduce stress, improve health and increase focus, cultivating an atmosphere of trust and cooperation. I have experience leading workshops for medical professionals, cancer patients, teens, young adults, nonprofit/corporate professionals, and yoga instructors and have studied MBSR, Healing Touch, and Medical Chi Gung. Additionally, I hold a California Teaching Credential and a Masters in English Literature having spent ten years in the public schools teaching and mentoring new teachers.
Meditation is an art, a key to internal freedom. It can help people to cultivate an openness, a flexibility, and a peacefulness inside regardless of ever-changing external circumstances. I aspire to create a safe space for others to experience the magic of total relaxation. It’s possible to access an inner oasis of calm, no matter what twists and turns the world may present.
