As a professional athlete and coach, performance has been at the centre of my life. It didn’t take much investigating to understand how negative thoughts and feelings effect not only our performance, but ultimately, our life. I realized that finding the next level, is more about an inward journey, than the continuous search of information. In 2007, Taylor Knox introduced me to Kelee Meditation. Soon after, I met the founder, Ron W. Rathbun who I continue to study with profound results. Understanding a phenomenon known known as The Kelee help us distil our natural talent to its purest point – as well as detach from mindless brain chatter and negative thoughts and feelings within. Teaching Kelee Meditation is now at the centre of my life and coaching.
The roots of the Kelee date back three thousand years in ancient Sanskrit. Its definition means, “having to do with different states of mind or point hunter.” The word Kelee is also in Greek and Hebrew and translates as vessel or receptacle.
This vessel—your Kelee—is a place where you can take bad things out and put good things in. Everyone has felt, at one time or another, emotion—good and bad—well up from within their Kelee. Kelee meditation will give you practical ways to understand your conscious awareness and how your thoughts influence the direction of your life. You will learn where your troubling thoughts reside and how to dissipate them with a practice that take about five minutes, twice a day.
Kelee meditation will show you the ground-breaking difference between your brain and your mind and how differently they operate. If you would like to explore the deepest reaches of your mind and open to the true power of your thoughts, understanding the basic principles of your Kelee is the place to start.
What is Kelee Meditation
Kelee meditation is a meditation practice focused on achieving stillness of the mind, thus, cultivating a true sense of peace and contentment in one’s life.
Kelee is a word to describe an energy field that is within everyone. Understanding the reference points within this energy field, the Kelee, can help you find it and guide you through Kelee meditation.
When you start doing Kelee meditation, you will see an immediate calming effect on your life. As you continue, it will help you to release old patterns, stress, anxiety, and tension, allowing for emotional and physiological healing as well as increased performance and happiness.
Ron W. Rathbun – Founder of The Kelee Spiritual Foundation
At the age of nineteen Ron W. Rathbun experienced a series of extraordinary events that changed the direction of his life. These events led Ron to a man who would become his teacher, mentor and friend. The form of meditation that Ron was taught by his mentor was stillness of the mind. It was during Ron’s early years of study that he became aware of the Kelee.
Ron began teaching meditation in 1985. He is a unique teacher in that he observes his students while they meditate and gives them feedback on the quality of their meditation and the condition of their Kelee. This is an extremely rare ability and very valuable to his students because their growth and development unfolds with ease, in an accelerated way.
Ron is the author of five books: The Way is Within: A Spiritual Journey; The Silent Miracle: Awakening Your True Spiritual Nature; The Kelee: An Understanding of the Psychology of Spirituality; The Kelee Meditation Practice: The Basic Principles of the Kelee; The Mind and Self-Reflection: A New Way to Read with Your Mind. His books have been published in Italian, Danish and Chinese. His books have won awards and he has been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine.
Ron is the founder of the Kelee Foundation—a non-profit organization—that is devoted to helping those that are sincerely seeking self-understanding. He lives in Oceanside, California with his wife Lavana. He loves nature and the ocean, especially surfing.
