About Michaiel B.

My name is pronounced (Mick-Eye-L) I've been meditating since 1983 when I was a high school senior. It was the single most important decision I made during my youth and has been so instrumental in my well being and success in life.

I started teaching meditation as a volunteer in Orlando Florida for folks with life-challenging illnesses waaayyy back in 1995! I've studied many meditation styles, progressive relaxation, biofeedback, and self-hypnosis training. I've discovered many powerful and easy-to-use mindfulness techniques which has allowed me to create my own meditation methodology I call, The Art of Going Within: How to Relax Your Mind in Minutes.

I'm a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) therapist, hypnotherapist, relaxation meditation teacher, a personal empowerment coach, author of a popular series of guided meditations, and have a private practice in downtown San Francisco, CA.

I've taught and coached thousands of stressed out folks over the past 25 years to improve the quality of their lives by understanding and managing their mind. I'm an excellent teacher, professional speaker, and have a series of popular guided relaxation meditations. I currently teach weekly classes at corporate offices and events, and I've also facilitated guided meditations at health spas and cruise ships in the past.

I love traveling around the world and I currently live in one of the beautiful cities I've ever experienced, I live in San Francisco, CA.

I first met Michaiel in 1994 at a local bookstore where he was leading a meditation. I've been listening and learning from him ever since.

I immediately recognized his special gift for meditation. He is knowledgable and intuitive, so he can customize his meditations for individual or group energies. It's truly magical and very healing.

He's a truly loving, compassionate and awakened Spiritual Healer, Hypnotherapist and Metaphysician.

My physician recommended Michaiel to me last year when I was dealing with some major insomnia issues. I was skeptical at first but then after doing a bit of research online, I decided to give it a try.

Michaiel was really great and helped me to understand how to let go of my anxiety through a writing technique he taught me. I did it the next day and it really helped me. I stopped feeling so bottled up with anxiety. I could breathe easier even after the first time. He also made a sleep tape for me to help me fall asleep, it works great. I no longer have to suffer from sleeping pill hangovers, thanks to Michaiel. Now I know why my doc recommended him to me.

I have recently gone through several major changes in my life and was overwhelmed with confusion when I reached out to Michaiel a private session after I went to one of his Meetup gatherings in San Francisco. I took my chances since I didn’t really know him that well, but my instincts paid off.

First off, he really listened to me and gave me his full attention. He was kind and patient throughout all of the 3 sessions I had with him and he really helped me to take my power back from stress and mental fatigue I had been experiencing. I also discovered ways to significantly reduce the chaos in my mind by learning a few techniques he taught me in order to relax my ‘monkey mind’ and become more focused. After our first session I had one of the best night sleep in years, after I applied a technique he taught me as I was going to sleep that night.

His voice is very soothing but what I really like about working with him is that he explained how his teaching methods work on a practical level. Nothing woo-woo about what he taught me. Meeting him was exactly what I needed to turn my life around in a more peaceful and positive direction. I highly recommend him and his guided meditations.

What an amazing experience! As a physician and professor of medicine, I'm a skeptic when it comes to mindfulness, meditation, or hypnosis, and usually stick to the traditional Western medicine approach. However, I do suffer from insomnia, and don't want to take medications, as they cause me to be groggy. I finally conceded that I had to try something and went to Michaiel. And as I said, he was amazing.

Michaiel walked me through a hypnosis session. And it helped! While all was not cured with one session, it definitely helped my insomnia, and also makes me less frustrated when it occurs. His calm demeanor, relaxing voice, and no-judgement approach allowed me to let my guard down, be open minded, and access the experience that others speak about, but I could not have imagined.

As a result, I will definitely go back to Michaiel for more sessions. More so, I will recommend my patients to be open to interventions of mindfulness, meditation, and hypnosis - as with the right provider, for the right condition or challenge, it can definitely be of benefit.
