I have practiced meditation for over 2,000 hours, spent over 150 days in mostly retreat, and have received nearly 200 hours of instruction in a meditation teacher training program.
I am studying with John Yates, PhD. (Upasaka Culadasa), a neuroscientist, scholar, and meditation master with over 4 decades of experience. He is the author of “The Mind Illuminated,” an acclaimed and highly-detailed meditation textbook. I teach exclusively in his style but offer a purely secular lens where necessary. Like Culadasa, I teach mediation from a progressive and scientific perspective. Although the instruction draws from an authentic lineage of Buddhist wisdom and philosophy, it is firmly grounded in modern cognitive psychology and neuroscience.
I also study with Dr. Tucker Peck, a meditation teacher and clinical psychologist, who studied with Sharon Salzberg and Upasaka Culadasa. I’ve also spent a month in retreat with Daniel Ingram, author of Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha.
