Founder and owner of Pure Meditation, a company which provides instruction and support for the practice of meditation. Pure Meditation exists to bring the community the opportunity to learn basic and advanced techniques in the life-enhancing and affirming practice of meditation. It is our hope that, as individuals and citizens, through the continued practice of daily meditation, that we heal ourselves physically and emotionally through the experience of Peace. From there we are able to extend and share our peace with everyone.


Owner, Pure Meditation; Minnetonka, MN — 2005-present

Pure Meditation was first offered to our patients, at Levin and Chellen Chiropractic, a holistic, natural health and wellness practice. Meditation instruction is offered as a service which helps to complete a plan for optimizing health based on the Triad model of Body/ Mind/ Spirit. This model clarifies the holistic concepts and serves as a structure for integrating the physical, chemical, and psycho-spiritual dimensions of human beings. Later, this training was offered to the larger community and has been taught to church groups, at-risk youths, and as a community education class.

As an instructor of Pure Meditation I have taught, as a volunteer, the adolescents in residence at Hennepin County Home School in Minnetonka, MN. Our hope is to help these at-risk youths to learn a skill which enables them to quiet, relax, and de-stress themselves physiologically as well as psychologically.

Volunteer speaker for The Foundation for Health and Wellness in the Public Interest — 2007-present

With my wife and partner, Dr. Sharon Levin, we have provided our community with many workshops which presented valuable and pertinent health care knowledge since 1997. Recently we have formed our own local non-profit organization, The Foundation for Health and Wellness in the Public Interest, FHWPI hopes to create more opportunity for natural health care professionals to share their experiences and knowledge with community groups who desire to educate themselves as consumers of health care and as people seeking practical information for the betterment of themselves and their families.
