I enjoy creating dynamic and varied meditations that introduce meditators to tools from many sources, so they may create personalized practices that are nourishing for them. For the last two years I have hosted live digital meditations three times a week, followed by discussions and Sangha (community) building.
My own practice and guidance is particularly inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh and Zen Buddhism, Davidji and ancient Vedic wisdom, mindfulness, energy medicine, and dialectical behavior therapy. As someone with physical and mental disabilities, I strive to make meditation accessible so every individual can learn basic tools for self care and self transformation.
