What People are Saying About Morning Meditation and George as a Teacher:
WINNER – BEST OF LA 2011 – ONLINE BUDDHIST MEDITATION
The local meditation center has a great vibe, but those dreaded obstacles to enlightenment – anger, fear, desire – are messing with your mind now. Those in the know power up the laptop, click on Skype, and make a call to George Haas, a vipassana instructor who’s brought the ancient practice online. From his Filipinotown home his breaded countenance masterfully guides students through the three steps of Concentration, Sensory Clarity, and Equanimity. Haas finds the online face-to-face encounters effective. “I can keep after you if you try and dodge regular practice,” he says. Los Angeles Magazine
“George Haas’ morning tele-meditation has been an invaluable tool to my practice both in meditation and in my life. With these morning meditations, George has provided a wonderful tool for any and everyone to deepen their meditation practice from anywhere in the world! Bravo and thank you!” Rachael Smith
“For me, the guided morning meditations serve as a jumping-off point into my day. They offer
a stable, sturdy opening to more meditation on my own, some days; on others, they’re all I do to
get myself centered, focused and headed into my day. Either way, they’re marvelous!” Lori Miller
“And if I only have the half hour, the skill with which you teach still helps bring clarity for the day.” Sarah Winter
“Thank you very much for your early morning meditations. In spite of my desire I had not been motivated to get up at a certain time every day and sit. Somehow I have found it easy to respond to my alarm and be in my chair by 7:30.” Anita Chernis
“George’s experiences on his own path combined with his intelligence and humor make him an unusually gifted meditation teacher. His morning meditations are the answer to bringing continued practice to my busy life. Thank you, George!” Soren Eilertsen
"I found your instruction helpful, accessible, smart and compassionate. Your sensitivity is a rich resource and you are a wonderful teacher." Laurie Rabins
"I found that your teaching provided me with essential tools in my meditation practice; namely the development of sensory clarity, dismantling of self- generated anger, and the development of an equanimity practice. Your teaching style is the perfect balance of profound insight, fascinating science, and extra dry martini humor. Thanks." Scotty Atkinson
"This class gave me a wealth of meditation techniques, most of which I'd never heard of before. As a result of doing the homework, I found that I was much happier, equanimous, and compassionate, both towards myself and towards others. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone." Tyler Graves
"Your philosophical and psychological insights are priceless to me and I just appreciate how your mind works. It is also humbling to have you be so honest about your background--so unguarded. It inspires a spirit of honesty and encourages everyone to be real and think clear thoughts. I could feel my own defenses cracking open." Candance Moore
"I love the scientific explanations of how the brain works, and neurotransmitters and right brain, left brain stuff, etc. etc." Mary Stancavage
"I admire the patience you have with everybody's questions. You have this seamless quality of putting aside your discussion and placing your full attention on responding." Adam Mayfield
"I had one chance to introduce my son to meditating and know that I needed to accompany him. I am so glad it was your day-long class that I chose. It served us both well. He has discovered his mind - the good and the bad news - and is talking about it. I am encouraging him to get a membership to Morning Meditation." Elizabeth Rona
