Qualifications and Experience
I have maintained a daily meditation practice for nearly 20 years.
Prior to discovering Zen meditation my practice was based in the New Kadampa Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. During this time I attended several retreats and festivals.
Four years ago I attended my first 3-DAY Intensive Zen Retreat with Zenways under the guidance of Julian Daizan Skinner ,
Since then I have attended four more intensive retreats and undergone the Zenways 100hr Mindfulness & Meditation Teacher Training (March 2016)
Most recently I took part in the Zenways 5 day Sesshin.
In my professional career I have taught Physics for 35 years.
My training as a teacher in the Rinzai Zen tradition of meditation enables me to share with you the simple, yet deeply profound, techniques that are as relevant today as when they were first taught many centuries ago. Techniques that can be applied very practically to everyday life.
