is a meditation teacher and multidisciplinary artist with intensive training in vipassana, Zen and Tibetan Buddhist mystical traditions. He has taught mindfulness at Deer Park Institute in India and New Life Foundation in Thailand. His performance work has been staged in New York, Germany, Sweden and Japan.
Mindfulness teachings often isolate the practice from larger cultural, spiritual and expressive contexts. This workshop goes the other direction: it integrates secular mindfulness practices with the wisdom of world philosophies and with the creative arts. The workshop is for those new to mindfulness, those with an established practice and for psychotherapists interested in integrating mindfulness into their clinical work. It is co-taught by a psychiatrist and cultural scholar from New York University, and an experienced meditation teacher.
