The Dao of Now is an initiative to bring ancient eastern wisdom to modern, western living. It vows to clear the haze of the modern age by helping individuals wake up to their own inherent wisdom and clarity. It does so through the teachings of mindfulness and meditation. Together we can build a monastery without walls
Mindfulness Coach | Meditation Teacher
I have been a student of meditation for almost half my life. I began experiencing the healing benefits that arises from a routine meditation practice in my mid-teens, in the midst of struggling with an anxious, overthinking mind. From that point on, I've been committed to continuing the practice, as well as sharing with others the gifts that arise from sitting still.
My hope is that by teaching mindfulness meditation, it can help ground, nourish and expand others in the same way that it has done so for me.
On this path, I've been fortunate enough to study with many wonderful teachers. My primary teacher is Hoben Kim Hansen from the White Plum Lineage of Soto Zen. My secondary teacher is the late Buddhist & yoga teacher Shoken Michael Stone, from whom I've received certification to teach.
