Peak Mindfulness Meditation

If you are just starting your mindfulness practice or if you are deepening it and learning new skills, come to Peak Brain and see how we can help you reap the benefits of an accessible and ancient practice with real brain benefits.

What is Mindfulness?

We define mindfulness as:

Paying attention, in a particular way, on purpose, to something specific, in the present moment, replacing judgement with inquiry.

Why meditate?

Mindfulness has been shown to have many positive effects, including increased attention, reduced stress and better response to stress, better sleep, and greater sense of ease.  Adopting a mindfulness practice may help reduce anxiety and develop attention, and can improve concentration, empathy, compassion, and resilience.

Who is it for?

Mindfulness training options at Peak include group classes and 1:1 instruction. We offer FREE classes for kids and adults, several times each week.

Our mindfulness facilitators will create sessions tailored to your individual needs and goals.

Rhythm Training

What is Rhythm Training?

This is Peak Brain’s ongoing West African style Rhythm Training group, where we use traditional Malinke rhythms to get out of our heads and into our hands and bodies. The group is currently exploring the following rhythms: Kuku, Yankidi-Macru, Sofa, and Soli Rapide.

Why do it?

There is growing evidence that training in rhythm can improve brain function. It’s also a lot of fun!

Who is it for?

The class is suitable for beginning through intermediate players.

This class is led by our founder Andrew Hill.

When and where are the classes?

Join us every third Friday of the month at 7:30pm at our Culver City office. RSVP at the link or by calling us at 310-904-6154.  Space is limited, so RSVP is required.
