Marty Katz

Mindful Clarity

My name is Marty Katz, Founder of Mindful Clarity. I have been a student of meditation for many years and have studied with teachers steeped in the wisdom of the Far East.


The basis of this learning is the Vedas, the body of work that informs the Buddhist and Hindu traditions. Through my studies, I have learned a range of meditation techniques, including breathing, mental focusing and mantras, which are a sounds that contain vibrational frequencies that move us into a meditative state.

My Mindful Clarity program synthesizes many techniques and is designed to make the process of meditation easy, uplifting , centering and deeply satisfying.
