I trained in meditation & yoga mostly from monastics. I continue to learn from my connections with lay people in sangha.

I encourage you to explore different practices and focus on the teachings (not the teacher). You will gain insight from your direct experience and walk your road of self-realization.

I created the Multidisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training from over 30 years on my pathway. I direct it at The Center for Mindful Living. Located in NW Washington DC (Tenleytown).

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.
