Mindfulness Meditation Coach
Complimentary 15 minute consultation!
Cayce has 25 years of experience in meditation, has lived at meditation retreat centers for nearly 6 years and is a MBSR/Meditation instructor for the renowned InsightLA meditation center based in Santa Monica. In 2014 he founded the Long Beach branch of InsightLA, which has been flourishing ever since.
Along with founding and managing his two meditation based companies, UnshakableMind.com and CalmCare.org, Cayce is a writer, speaker and advocate of the benefits of meditation in everyday life. Cayce’s passion for helping others has been fueled through his own difficult and stressful life experiences. He has spent 10 years as a family caregiver. At 23 years old his then high school sweetheart was struck with a debilitating chronic illness. Severe daily chronic pain and multiple surgeries followed. Cayce found solace and relief in meditation from ongoing compassion fatigue. Desperate to heal her, he found the healing quality of mindfulness meditation to ease her pain, anxiety and depression.
The positive power of meditation followed him into the corporate world, as he worked as the Marketing Director of a 35+ location restaurant chain in Northern California before co-founding his own Marketing Agency, TrafficSwami.com.Through it all he saw how the principles of meditation could positively influence his health, mental clarity and zeal for life.
My intention is to love and serve. I believe 100% in empowerment; there is nothing that I share that the client will not learn to do for themselves. I do not wish to act as a crutch but instead a stepping-stone. My clients learn quickly that I do very little,yet what they find within themselves is quite amazing. We already are what we are seeking. Love, approval and appreciation can be felt from the inside. My gift to my clients is simply shining the light on parts of themselves that may have been hidden for some time.
My offerings are Dana based. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Dana means giving. The below pricings are suggested donations. Your donation covers my time, supplies, renting the room as well as covering those that will pay less. Your act of generosity is significant. The Buddha taught that all of the beautiful qualities of heart and mind begin with generosity: Generosity dissolves the separation of self and other… Giver receiver and gift intertwined.
You can meditate! I promise. People often tell me, “I can’t meditate”. Usually they are thinking about concentration or “stopping their thoughts”. These are misconceptions.
With the right instruction you will reap the long list of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual benefits that come along with a consistent meditation practice. Did you know that meditators are 12 years younger physiologically compared to their chronological age? Crazy right?
Private meditation instruction is my favorite thing to teach. Why? Because I may be a bit of a perfectionist, and with a 1-1 situation we can go to the depths, answer all your questions and the results are always amazing. The mind is a deep, vast landscape, and I will be there to customize a program that fits exactly what you need, with your lifestyle, challenges and make up.
Mindfulness meditation is a 2,500 year old practice originating in Buddhism. Yet, at its core, it is a secular practice free of dogma and religious overtones. Instead it focuses purely on the universal human experience of reality. The meditationpractice uses awareness to look at our daily experiences with a non-judgmental spaciousness, giving rise to relaxation and inner peace even amidst life’s biggest challenges.
Mindfulness is the practice of allowing everything to be “as it is” with full non- judgmental acceptance. We are able to accept whatever arises and investigate our experiences with neutrality instead of blindly reacting and launching into ourhabitual patterns. Every moment becomes new, and along with this freshness comes an innate compassion, stillness and settling calm.
This is why mindfulness is such a powerful tool when dealing with trauma, stress, anxiety, addiction, and basic suffering of the mind. Without a tool to separate ourselves from the actual experience, it’s difficult to gain a larger perspective, tolook from the outside in. Mindfulness gives us that perspective, mindfulness is that tool.

Pranic Healing is a highly evolved and tested system of energy medicine developed by GrandMaster Choa Kok Sui that utilizes prana to balance, harmonize and transform the body’s energy processes. Prana is a Sanskrit word that means life-force. Thisinvisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In acupuncture, the Chinese refer to this subtle energy as Chi. – pranichealing.com
Why Pranic Healing?
I have been a Certified Pranic Healer for over 15 years and have found that although meditation and the inner arts work very well to maintenance physical, emotional, mental and spiritual obstacles, Pranic Healing is an amazing accelerator to removeobstacles and crucial for assisting acute illness.

“Cayce has taught both private sessions with myself and also groups at my medical clinic. Mindfulness practice is for everyone in all walks of life. As a doctor I find it extremely helpful to handle my day more efficiently”
– Dr. Claudia Eppele
“Cayce is a mindfulness Yoda whose kind soul and calming presence can quiet the most anxious mind. For years, I’ve tried to meditate on my own but always felt like I was doing it “wrong.” As a recent cancer survivor, I now recognize the importance ofstillness and calm to my overall healing, so mindfulness meditation has become a priority. Cayce and I have been meditating on Skype for months and it has truly helped calm the storm. He has taught me that, “sitting in the quiet is the path. There’s nothing to reveal. It’s the path and the destination.” I am truly grateful that the gift of Cayce appeared when he did. “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
– Rebecca E., Cancer Survivor
“ After sessions with Cayce I can better face unpleasant thoughts without trying to bury them. I have been better equipped to handle the stress of this sometimes chaotic world and experience living with a new awareness.
