Welcome! Entering the Stream is an online school and community for inner peace in the modern world.
We teach “inner peace skills” — simple yet highly transformational practices and perspectives that can make a lasting difference in how you experience the world.
Starting an inner practice can change your life, from the inside out. You can wash away your stress and suffering at root levels within, come alive, discover more about who you really are, and come into the flow of the life most meant for you.
Our methods are distilled from Zen meditation and mindfulness (in the Zenways tradition of Zen master Shinzan Miyamae and Zen master Julian Daizan Skinner), modern somatic therapy (in the style of international trauma expert Deirdre Fay), and energy psychology (in the tradition of clinical psychologist David Feinstein) — synthesized into a single “toolkit” through a decade of full-time practice, research, and teaching. We offer a combination of ancient and modern techniques, which we’ve found create the most rapid and holistic results in tandem.
Our founding teacher is Mary Hartley Platt (PhD, Oxford University). She has experienced firsthand (and continues to explore every day) the deep inner peace, healing, transformation, and embodied freedom that our style of practice can unlock.
It’s easy to learn and get started, and the skills have been working for generations. Come give it a try…
