Modern Life is Challenging

Stress and wild emotions limit our health, relationships and potential.

Meditation can protect your mind so you can live a meaningful life beyond mental chaos.

Like many people, I was suffering from the chaos in my life.

Lasting calm and clarity seemed like a myth. My weeks were filled with things like grocery shopping and cleaning the house not to mention working 50+ hours a week. wondered if I even had the time to look for peace. 

Practicing Zen meditation gave me the tools to save myself from the deep toxicity of depression and abandoning a meaningful career teaching languages. [Read More

I care about your calm and clarity and am here to help however I can.

"Since I've become more mindful, or at least as I try to be more mindful, I'm listening better. Which is helping me understand better. It's helping me relax and focus on my breathing when an anxiety attack or panic attack or OCD attack or PTSD flash are settling in. I'm able to calm myself down faster already. I feel like I'm regaining my grip on reality and letting go of the world of panic I tend to live in."

"I really enjoyed [the course]! I found the mix of videos and some print summary notes really helpful. It came at a very opportune time in my life when I was making some big decisions....your course and a series of Pema Chodron videos helped me get to those decisions in a calmer and more centered fashion than I would have otherwise. Thank you!"

How I Can Help You

I teach simple mind training techniques from the Japanese Rinzai Zen tradition – a tradition that has been helping everyday busy people improve their health and wellbeing for over 500 years. You can use these meditations wherever you stand, sit, walk, or lie down. Walking to the car or drinking coffee can be used to train your mind.  No special equipment needed. Just a human brain.

Zen meditation offers both temporary relief of difficult conditions and deep long-term positive change. These techniques grow lasting inner calm and clarity – even when you’re not practicing them. The harmful effects of stress and wild emotions can be drastically reduced – even avoided completely. Negative habits can transform into more positive ones. We can learn who we are beyond the challenges of a busy modern life. How could your life be if you transformed your mental chaos?

My workshops, online classes, and guided meditations can benefit anyone – from beginners learning how to meditate for stress and anxiety relief to experienced meditators looking to learn more about the Zen Buddhist approach.
