About Royal Way

Royal Way was founded in 1979 by Dr. Michael Menahem Gottlieb. Incorporating his decades of experience as a scholar, a teacher, a rabbi, and a professional therapist, Michael founded Royal Way as an accessible spiritual community for the modern individual seeking a better understanding of one’s self and a stronger relationship with the divine.

“Meditation is one of the
very few effective ways of
learning how to live fully.”


The beauty of Royal Way is that you can be anywhere on your meditation journey, from curious to seasoned. Royal Way is a welcoming community that provides the space and guidance to begin or deepen your practice.
