My meditation practice began in the mid-90s when a stressful business career and study of classical piano collided in a health disaster. What started out as an effort to address physical pain and depression has now, 24 years later, turned into a way of life. It’s now a daily personal practice that touches everything I do.
I was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2004, and regularly teach and lead retreats at the Boston Triratna Buddhist Community and Aryaloka Buddhist Center. Coaching came as a natural part of teaching meditation. I received my training from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) in 2008 and have been coaching ever since. I took on MBSR teacher training in 2011 when mindfulness began to gain acceptance in the mainstream and scientific communities. My training is with the Center for Mindfulness at the UMass Medical Center. I’ve now taught over 30 cycles of MBSR classes in the Boston area.
