This practice is not perfect or finished. There is no goal of perfection or even progress – it is simply a practice. A continual beginning over and over again, a constant process of remembering … to come back to the practice and come back to the truth of things as they really are.
I teach from my own experience of a life holding the fullness of the entire spectrum of emotional, mental and physical ups and downs and the sinusoidal waves of meeting, acknowledging and letting go of greed, aversion and delusion.
I also teach from the ancient wisdom transmitted to me through my mother and from monks teaching in the Thai Forest tradition; the research of modern neuroscience and psychology; the informal teachings of the gentle and wise among the community; and the formalized trainings of Western Buddhists, scientists and scholars.
Regardless of my background and with the utmost respect for yours, I am honored to walk alongside you on your path towards insight and freedom.
With warmth and well wishes,
