I have complete confidence in Nick as a skillful, insightful, and generous meditation instructor. Beyond his rigorous training in the study and practice of the discipline, he understands how to apply it to a fast-paced workplace to boost creativity, intelligence, and fearlessness in response to a changing environment.”

Susan Piver, New York Times best selling author and Buddhist teacher

As a beginner to the study of meditation, I found Nick’s method of mindfulness meditation to be a perfect introduction. His teaching guided the class in their ability to focus, and the practice sessions were wonderful. It became easier to disregard distractions and join in the peaceful atmosphere of the class. I would recommend Mindful in the Midst and Nick Kranz’s classes to anyone interested in stress management and meditation.”

Judith E. Patterson, Director of Human Resources Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I have been studying meditation for the last three years and Nick has been one of the best teachers that I have met. His teaching style is down to earth, easy to access, yet deeply reflective. Nick combines his deep understanding of meditation with patience and humor to make it fun, educational and helpful for everyone in his class.”
