Zeida and AdyaZeida Rothman

For the past 40 years, Zeida has been dedicated to practicing various Non-Dual Meditations that have taken root throughout Asia. Her first teacher was Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, of whom she sat with in Bombay India. In 1983 she had ordained as a Buddhist nun at the Mahasi Monastary in Burma. After returning to the U.S, she sat numerous three-month silent meditation retreats. In 2000, Zeida was asked to share the Dharma by Adyashanti. Her Love and devotion to Liberation is now expressed as a weekly offering through on-going small groups held in Berkeley. They are for those who are committed to abiding as our True Nature through direct experience and would like one-on-one guidance with Zeida and group support within a caring community.
