Scott Swanson, Founder

accordian-image1

Scott Swanson is the Founder of All Centered and Just Sit Meditation. After years of practice within the realm of meditation he felt it would serve the world best to strip all philosophy and theology from this practice and help one person at a time, from any background, discover their own unfiltered power within beyond the distorted limitations of mind and intellect.

 

He’s well known and recognized as an impactful teacher within this realm that “some say” has helped to evolve the intensity and accessibility of meditation by stripping all the noise out of something that’s meant to be basic, simple, powerful and you all at once. He holds private classes, workshops and retreats to support people and has also brought together some of the best practitioners in the country within their fields to heal, align and nurture our bodies beyond the limitations of western medicine and into our innate natural state of healing oneself.

I’ve always been a seeker, deeply affected by life. Since the day I can remember I’ve been searching for greater understanding and a balanced sense of presence within this existence. Life always had a unique grasp on me and a way of pulling on my sense of purpose and level of peace; I always felt out of line with place and purpose. In effect I religiously and spiritually reached out in a quest for the answers to true happiness and balance.
While living within a Zen Temple studying the Soto Zen Tradition of Shikantaza I had the greatest breakthrough and sense of absolute awareness and peace. It was at this time I realized how every story, idea or belief system I had formed or that had been formed by others in my life had actually veiled my sense of self and awareness. I felt everything beyond the minds limited intellectual capacity. It was in the experiential and feeling realm beyond the minds ability to translate that I existed, that WE exist as one. From that day forward I vowed to create the optimal conditions for others to experience oneself as I did and do, hence; All Centered.
I’m here for you now. My contact information is listed below and I would love to hear more about you and feel for how I can help. If you live in LA I’m available for private sessions or you can organize an event that you think could help yourself or others you love.

After more than 12 years of practicing holistic and preventative medicine, I can most definitely say it has been the most rewarding part of my career. My practice style has remained the same. I spend plenty of quality time with each patient and my support staff is also trained to do the same. The joy and satisfaction of knowing I have made a difference in the lives of patients and their families is incomparable. My practice attracts patients who have not had success with conventional medicine or the cannot tolerate or will not take prescription drugs. I integrate a natural approach to conventional medicine, including natural alternatives to prescription drugs, vitamin and nutrient supplements as well as nutritional advice. Although my main focus is prevention, I specialize in chronic illness.

 

I see a wide range of patients, from children to the elderly, who are all seeking natural ways to improve their health. In addition to sound nutritional and preventative advice, I offer a wide range of medical services including bio-identical hormones, therapeutic vitamin drips, immune systems support and detoxification protocols.

Angelica Galland, , Director, Lead Instructor (Yoga)

After her first yoga class in 2000, Angelica Galland knew she wanted to be a teacher. Six years later she completed her first teacher training program shortly after completing her massage therapy training. Angelica’s yoga classes were at first very athletic, but as she continued her massage work she began to see the importance of teaching classes that were accessible and safe for every body. Her love became teaching to beginners and especially to those who didn’t think yoga was possible.

 

She was blessed to have recently completed a yoga therapy training through the Niroga Institute. She now also offers one-on-one yoga as a complementary treatment for common conditions from arthritis to depression as well as supporting students in modifying poses that allow them to safely take group classes.

Four years ago, she began to deepen her meditation practice and is graced with the opportunity to study the Vajrayana path under the guidance of Lama Palden Drolma at the Sukhasiddhi Foundation. The interplay between the postures, breath, and mindfulness grew more clear especially after her most recent journey with cancer. Radical surgery transformed her body and the sum of the experience drove the path deeply inward for Angelica. Yoga and meditation facilitated her rehabilitation and continues to illuminate and release embedded trauma as well as the habitual patterns of thinking and acting that were the result. She feels called hold a healing space for others by sharing her “everyday” insights, empowering them with these same tools, and meeting people exactly where they are in a loving and supportive way.

Dr. Mike Zalben, Body Alignment Doctor

accordian-image5

As a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Life West Chiropractic College (class of ’99), Dr. Zalben began his healing career by specializing in the treatment of injured workers (workman’s compensation) and Personal Injury victims in San Diego, California. Since then, he has devoted thousands of hours in post graduate educational programs including muscular and physical therapies, Dr. Fleet’s Zone Chiropractic Technique, Dr. Robert Boyd’s Bio-Cranial System, as well as becoming a state Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) and Industrial Disability Evaluator (IDE).

 

Dr. Zalben is also a member of the Concept-Therapy Institute and holds a free weekly class based on Dr. Fleet’s book, “Rays of the Dawn, The Total Health Handbook.”

 

Since 2002, he has practiced Zone Chiropractic, also known as Zone Healing–a holistic healing method, that treats the entire person—body, mind, and soul—in order to achieve true health and lasting wellness. Dr. Z believes that, “although the body is self-regulating and self healing, it is not self-correcting. I go to a chiropractor myself, and I will continue to get adjusted for the rest of my life!”

 

Furthermore he states that, “I seldom find the need to use excessive forces when adjusting the spine in order to improve one’s health, correct posture, or treat aches and pains.” Dr. Zalben believes that the key to healing from most “dis-ease” conditions resides in the cranial-sacral system—the physical structures that protect the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves). “It’s the alignment of the 22 bones that make up your head that determines your level of health and resistance to illness. When the cranial bones are aligned correctly, all you should feel is a really deep stretch from the top of your neck all the way down your spine and possibly into the pelvis. The relaxation that you experience is so profound. Once the cranial bones are in alignment, the spine virtually corrects itself, and when that happens then healing can begin to take place on the deepest levels of your being.”
