MDitate, Your Prescription for Peace
Located in Newport Beach, CA, MDitate is the first commercial, secular meditation studio in Orange County. The studio has made meditation techniques accessible for anyone to conveniently recharge, rest, and find more balance in life. And the founder is a physician.
After experiencing the all-too-common symptoms of burnout, Adam M. Rotunda, M.D., a fellowship-trained Mohs skin cancer surgeon in Newport Beach, CA, and Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University of California, Irvine, ventured on a silent, 10-day, meditation retreat. He has since felt compelled to share the benefits that he personally experienced with his students, colleagues, patients, and community.
Meditation’s effects are validated by numerous peer-reviewed studies: reduced anxiety, more patience, better focus, improved sleep, and more compassion. Brain imaging studies have shown that it literally reduces the amygdala (the “fear center” that controls the fight or flight response) and it increases pre-frontal cortex functioning, which regulates self-control and attention.

The studio offers 40 weekly classes within a beautiful space. In addition to guided meditation, Qi Gong (a form of Tai Chi), and yoga nidra (deep rest) classes, MDitate offers sound bath workshops and silent retreats. MDitate plans to feature distinguished guest speakers and continuing medical education conferences.
Benefit: OCMA members receive a 20% discount on monthly membership and class packages. Additionally, this benefit will be extended to their patients if they’re referred directly by the OCMA physician.
