Thank you for visiting. My website is here to share my practice of Reflective Meditation. I know from personal experience that it's hard to maintain a regular meditation practice, especially in the beginning. If you'd like personalized support and help with developing a meditation practice that works for you, I'm available for meditation support online and in person in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I am associated with SatiSangha (Newbury Park, CA), Pine Street Sangha (Portland, OR), Vacaya Sisters (online), and Still Mountain Meditation Center (Ann Arbor, MI)
