This moment is the fundamental reality.

I began meditating in 2013.

I began leading meditations in 2016.  I organized a weekly group meditation in my home.  The event grew to include tea ceremony, therapeutics, acro yoga, contact improvisation, and relational work.

My primary influence is Ram Dass (and Maharaj-ji).  Other influences have included (alphabetically) Alan Watts, Jesus Christ, Ken Wilber, Mooji, Osho (Rajneesh), Sadhguru, Pema Chodron, Yogananda.
