Speaking and Teaching Events
Use the form at the bottom of this page if you’re interested in booking me for a teaching or speaking engagement, a workshop, or any other event that involves my live participation. I love doing these. I also welcome writing and creative collaboration queries.
See my event calendar if you’re interested in attending one of my workshops, classes, or retreats.
I often get requests from folks looking for individual guidance. I prefer to work with groups. But I do have a network of people I recommend for one-on-one meditation instruction. These include my pal Avi Craimer, a smart and experienced Toronto-based teacher, who also sees students virtually. My pal Jude, a street-smart synthesizer of meditation and psychotherapy who’s also struggled with ADHD (he is very good with new meditators). My own teacher Shinzen Young, who runs a superb Home Practice Program one weekend a month (an at-home mini-retreat for very little cost). Shinzen’s main facilitator Julianna Raye – awesome lady – runs a rigorous mindfulness training program for students and would-be mindfulness teachers here.
Also, if you download the 10% Happier app, not only are there many guided meditations and videos from myself and other teachers, the monthly subscription includes live support from a team of experienced meditation teachers. You can email them your questions, or chat with them on the phone. It’s a pretty amazing resource – and one version of the future of practice support (I imagine a meditation teacher call centre, everyone on their Zen headsets, the office filled with throw cushions and wind chimes).
Finally: Nerdery and Gratitude
For general queries regarding meditation, consciousness, and the fascinating culture of spirituality in general, you can ask them using the form below. I’m planning to address these topics in a new book and as part of a regular series on this site soon.
Finally finally, I enjoy hearing from people whom I’ve helped, directly or indirectly. Life is short, and love keeps me trucking along.
