At some point on our journey,
we have to stop and look in the mirror…
Spirituality is at the heart of what I want to bring to the world and to my life. Another way to say that is that I try to live from a deep knowing of who I am, which is fundamentally the same as who we all are – vast, loving, and whole. If you are headed in a spiritual direction on your journey and would like support, let me know.
I have been a Zen practitioner for 20 years. I lived for six years at the San Francisco Zen Center, Green Gulch Zen Center, and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center. I ordained as a Zen priest in 2009 and I am now a Zen teacher, having received what’s called Dharma Transmission from Reverend Kosho McCall in 2013.
If you would like to work with me as a Zen teacher, here are a few ways…
- I can support you on your individual spiritual path. This would normally look like meeting anywhere from once to monthly. Donation-based.
- I can officiate rituals such as weddings, funerals, and other rites of passage. My style is very non-denominational. I try to get a thorough sense of what you want and then give it to you in a way that’s authentic to me.
- I can give meditation instruction or a talk influenced by Buddhist teachings to your group.
