Welcome to this gateway to meditation and the Buddhist path.   Below, you will find my current teaching schedule and special announcements.  Under “Insight Teachings,” I offer recordings of my talks, guided meditations, written meditation help and articles about the dharma.

I perform weddings, memorials and other rites of passage, all on a donation basis.  See “In Person” for more details.  Please use the Contact form to let me know how I can help.   Samples of my photography are displayed in the “Galleries.”

This site is dedicated to the well-being of all.
