Meditation is Devon’s passion and purpose. A meditator since 2002, the practice has been deeply transformative for her.

Devon is masterful at translating all she’s learned into simple terms, making her classes appropriate for first-time meditators as well as experts. No matter what your experience level, her approach effectively reduces stress and promotes well-being.

WITHIN Meditation is an online meditation studio based in San Francisco. Our goal is to make it possible for anyone to learn how to meditate, and develop their personal meditation practice, so that they can experience the benefits of meditation first-hand. Our teachers offer the guidance and support participants need to get started meditating, and stick with it.

At the start of the pandemic, we moved all of our classes online, where we’ve created a community of teachers and students from across the United States and as far away as London and the Philippines. We hold up to 5 classes per day, each with a different teacher, making it easy for anyone to drop in and reset. We also offer courses, retreats and events to deepen your practice and connect you with others in the WITHIN community. Join us at
