I have extensive experience instructing children, adolescents, and adults in mindfulness and meditation practices. Meditation has brought me a greater sense of self-understanding, self-compassion, and a rich community of other meditators around the world. I like helping skeptics find practices that work for them as much as I enjoy working with individuals who already have a meditation practice and seek extra support.
A sampling of mindfulness work:
Though I am familiar with many traditions including Shambhala, Zen, and yoga, I mostly practice within the Insight Meditation tradition. I am especially invested in Insight Dialogue, an interpersonal meditation practice.
I offer instruction tailored to an individual or group's needs and interests. I am committed to social justice and dismantling obstacles to health and wellbeing for all. I am committed to honoring and respecting all beings and to supporting individuals marginalized by our society. If cost is a barrier to receiving support, I offer sliding scale pricing options.
Off the cushion, I am pursuing a Masters in Social Work at UNC-Chapel Hill and spend time with my partner and our cat Archie. I like half-following recipes, urban walks and sylvan hikes, yoga, weaving, and writing. My writing can be found at Indy Week and Localeur, among other outlets.
