Deep Thoughts

by C California Style

Nobody knows the pressures of Hollywood better than former NBC executive Tal Rabinowitz …

a veteran of the entertainment industry for close to 20 years. “When I was working at NBC, I learned transcendental meditation and practiced a daily 20-minute meditation with my team,” Rabinowitz says. “But when I looked for a studio or place to practice outside of the office, it didn’t exist.” So she created The Den Meditation studio, located near L.A.’s Miracle Mile. Organic surfaces and Moroccan textiles combine to create a warm and calming environment, where you’ll find patrons lingering after guided meditation classes with a cup of tea or quietly reading scripts. “I don’t want to pretend that the real world doesn’t exist,” Rabinowitz says. “There is Wi-Fi, places to sit and work, and coffee and tea to drink. If you can learn to integrate meditation into your busy life, you will be a much more balanced person.” 360 S. La Brea Ave., L.A., 323-424-3444; denmeditation.com.
