Qualifications and Experience
I have maintained a daily meditation practice for over 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.
Five years ago I attended my first 3-Day Silent Intensive Zen Retreat with Zenways under the guidance of Daizan Roshi.
Since then I have attended six more intensive retreats and undergone the Zenways 200hr Mindfulness & Meditation Teacher Training for Health and Wellbeing
and the Mindfulness and Meditation for Insight and Grounding Training
Every year I take part in a 5 or 7 day Sesshin.
In my professional career I have taught Physics for 30 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.
