I often recommend the teachers of Integral Yoga.
Here's their teachers site which lists them by
state. You'll find plenty in Northern California
They all have been trained in meditation as part
of their Yoga teacher certification in a program
designed by Swami Satchidananda, who I consider a
master of Yoga and Meditation. I've been dealing
with this organization for years and have never been
pressured into any cult-type or religious stuff and
have always found them to be righteous in every way.
I do have a few very qualified friends in Northern
California and we'll see if they feel a connection to
your inquiry and respond personally to either you, me,
or this group. In any event, I'm confident that you
will evolve exactly as you are supposed to at the exact
time it is meant to happen, and for sure it will have a
"looking within" situation as part of IT.
Peace and blessings,
