My Approach

Everything that I teach comes from my own practice experience, past and present.

I see myself as being a guide or a facilitator, helping you along a path of discovery whether you are a beginner or a more advanced meditator.

As a facilitator I can guide you through a practice and help you see the learnings and insights that are there. You do the work yourself, and you know yourself better than I do. I will never say, for example, “if you practice x, then y will happen”. We are all different, we all learn differently, and we all see things in different ways. It’s important to say this, as there are no quick fixes when it comes to meditation practice.




At the centre of your being, 

You have the answer,

You know who you are,

And you know what you want.

Lao Tzu


I also like to take the mystery out of meditation. In the words of Zen Master Shunryu Suzuki, sitting and being with ourselves is “nothing special.” We sit and we watch our mind. That’s all.  We learn how the busy thinking mind can cause all sorts of difficulties in our lives and, through practice, we begin to relate to our thoughts in a different way. For most, freeing ourselves from the prison of our thoughts is liberating enough. But such discoveries can also set us up for a continuing journey into the mind and its nature if you wish to pursue this.

At the end of the day, I teach meditation as a means of getting to know, and taking care of,  yourself. Choosing this path could be one of the most important decisions you ever make in your life. I would love to take this journey with you.

Open your heart to who you are, right now,

Not who you would like to be,

Not the saint you are striving to become,

But the being right here, before you, inside you.
