Meditation and wellbeing have been my central passion for close to fifteen years. Like most teachers, it was my own personal search for meaning and liberation that lead me to mindfulness practice. Having worked for over a decade as a fitness and nutrition coach I’ve helped hundreds of individuals to achieve their health and performance goals. In that capacity I founded and operated a fitness facility for 6 years even working for a time with professional athletes where I developed a unique approach to help people change based on concentration, wellbeing and mindset.
As a meditator for over 15 years, I have worked with many different teachers in multiple meditation traditions, have sat numerous long retreats and am currently the moderator of an international mediation community. My practice has been a journey of intuitive exploration grounded in traditional vipassana, non-dual inquiry, breathwork and various mindset and recovery modalities.
I soon discovered that one of the greatest benefits of a daily meditation practice was a sense of profound wellbeing that was independent of life’s circumstances. As a father, husband and small business owner I understand the overwhelming demands that many of us face with our time. I put a premium on meeting my students where they’re at by helping them to develop simple and repeatable mindfulness habits that meet the needs and realities of their busy lives.
I apply this intuitive approach to my teaching as well, placing a premium on clarity, simplicity and client-focused instruction. For beginning meditators I help to establish basic mindfulness habits which includes both meditation as well as somatic resonance work. With more advanced students with established sitting practices the emphasis has been on deepening of samatha practice with Jhana and self inquiry towards the goals of insight and awakening.
