About Us

About The Inner Net

We started The Inner Net with a simple mission: to offer a place for people to investigate meditation online. We have found the practice of meditation to be incredibly helpful in our own lives, and we have been blessed to live in cities with thriving meditation communities. With The Inner Net, we hope to make meditation accessible to those that wish to investigate the practices from the comfort of their own homes.


We have been teaching meditation for years all over California at meditation centers, treatment centers, and with private students. We are fortunate to also be skilled with technology, working with computers for a living. Our intention is to use our strengths with technology to provide a service that is useful, inspiring, and cultivates some freedom and kindness in those that we work with.
