I have found great benefit from Mindfulness Meditation practices and the teachings of the Buddha. My journey of self discovery began around 2003 when I was inspired by the audio book “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle, and then taking an Ann Arbor Rec & Ed Insight Meditation class, and teachers Susan Weir and Barbara Brodsky.  With exposure to teachings and through my own practice I knew I had found orientation to meet and make sense of life’s experiences, all of which are captured and known within the mind. 

I have a daily practice and enjoy Dharma readings and talks and have attended over 20 meditation retreats. I have assisted with and taught classes for 3 years.
