David Thomas France

David is a Movement Therapist, researcher, and senior yoga instructor with over 25 years experience.  David has practiced Zen since 1992 primarily with Reb Anderson and Yvonne Rand. And supplemented his practice working with Jaya Ashmore and Christopher Titmuss from the Thai Theravada tradition. He is a certified practitioner of Body-Mind Centering®, a form of physical and sensory education that encompasses all the body systems and developmental aspects of human experience.  David has studied yoga with masters throughout the world, particularly influenced by Rodney Yee, Donna Farhi, and Erich Schiffmann, and now focuses on personal research and deep listening to his guide practice.  In tandem with his movement studies he has studied the Ayurvedic and Osteopathic traditions of healing and bodywork.  Uncompromisingly eclectic and interdisciplinary, he brings to his lessons a broad range of experiences from athletics, martial arts, contemplative arts, dance, and healing arts. Originally from from the San Francisco Bay Area, David teaches internationally, and has lived in Japan since 2007.

メディテーション サークル



While there are many wonderful printed and online resources for meditation, being in active, ongoing, and present relationship with others on the path is an invaluable part of an authentic meditation practice. Sangha, the community of meditation practitioners, is one of the 3 pillars of practice taught by the Buddha. The Circle is here to provide ongoing support for meditation practice as well as develop connections among those who want to explore and grow their meditation practice in community.

We start with a brief guided meditation as a lead-in to longer periods of silent meditation, and finish with discussion:

 17:30-17:45 Orientation
 17:45-18:30 Guided & silent meditation period
 18:30-19:00 Discussion, sharing & integration, reading (you may leave anytime)


You do not need to have any previous experience in meditation to attend the group sitting but beginners are encouraged to become versed in the basics of meditation by attending Meditation Fundamentals workshops
