About Jason Bond
I first started meditating in 2013. I was struggling to find a healthy work-life balance while working as a public high school teacher. I was failing. I rarely had much time for myself; just a few hours on Sunday afternoons if I was lucky. Life felt overwhelming and exhausting. I was unhappy and willing to try almost anything to survive – even ‘hippy stuff’ like meditation.
My early attempts at meditation saved me from certain burnout and depression. They led to a glimpse of a peace that escapism or alcohol couldn’t provide. The more I kept meditating, the more peace spread into my work life too. I was able to remain calmer and more focused while teaching. I could handle conflict with students, colleagues, and admins better. I even had more energy after a long work day.
This deep positive change in my personal and professional lives motivated me to help others live more peacefully too. I trained as a mindfulness and Zen meditation teacher under the guidance of Zen master Daizan Roshi. My aim is to help you master practical techniques that’ll empower you to live a healthier, happier life.
