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.
