How to use a psychology-informed approach to Buddhist mindfulness meditation to ground, relax, unwind, self-regulate, and de-stress during this challenging time of lockdown. Beginners welcome.

Bio

After years as a sometimes focused, sometimes hard-partying Hollywood actor, I decided to plunge into serious yoga and meditation practice.

I had always wanted to undertake such a journey, had read a thousand books about it and could think of nothing more meaningful, but it had always seemed somehow beyond my grasp. Call it low self-esteem left over from a rocky childhood. And so it was a profound overcoming when I finally pushed through my fear, and began.

In yoga, I trained extensively with Hala Khouri and Julian Walker in their science and psychology-informed Awakened Heart Embodied Mind training, and with Saul David Raye in his devotional Atma Yoga style.

I also trained in the vipassana meditation tradition for ten years with senior Buddhist teachers including Shinzen Young, George Haas, and Jack Kornfield, attending over twenty-five silent residential retreats in that time. I mentored closely with Dharma maverick and recognized attachment theory expert George Haas, and was honored to teach alongside him before striking out on my own.

By now I have been teaching mindfulness meditation and yoga in Los Angeles for eight years. I believe passionately in the transformative power of these modalities, and especially in their contemporary intersection with neuroscience and psychology. 

And finally, as a longtime poet, musician, playwright and actor, I remain fiercely devoted both to creativity as a spiritual path, and conversely, to exploring the ways spirituality enlivens the creative domain.
