I trained in meditation & yoga mostly from monastics. I continue to learn various expressions from my connections with lay people in sangha.
I encourage you to explore different practices and to focus on the teachings (not the teacher). You will gain insight from your direct experience, and walk your road of self-realization.
I am an active mentor with the Insight Meditation Community of Washington.
I work with all kinds of people, many with unique conditions or maladies.
