Speaking and Teaching

Please use the form at the bottom of this page if you have a meditation-related question, or you’re interested in booking me for a speaking or teaching engagement. I have a “Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics” workshop and talk that I’ve rolled out to different audiences, from police officers to Google executives to random assemblages of curious humans.  I love doing these.

See my event calendar if you’re interested in attending one of my other workshops, classes, or retreats.

One-on-One Teaching

For folks looking for individual guidance, I prefer working with groups, but I do run a free live weekly community sit on my YouTube channel – called The Do Nothing Project – for all those near and far. I try to answer questions there, and our community is growing.

For more personalized one-on-one instruction, I have a network of teachers I recommend that includes Avi Craimer,  Jude StarEmily and Vincent Horn, and my own teacher Shinzen Young, who hosts a super helpful Home Practice Program one weekend a month at little cost. Shinzen’s main facilitator Julianna Raye has a mindfulness training program for students and would-be teachers here.

There are also many good meditation apps out there. Insight Timer is free. 10% Happier – the one I’m on – is excellent, professionally curated with guided meditation videos from some of the best teachers in North America. Their monthly subscription fee includes live support from a team of experienced meditation instructors.

Community

Meditation can be empowering and healing. So can community and social support. You learn tips from others, and just hanging out with an open-minded group of fellow explorers can make life better. I do this virtually via the Do Nothing Project, at different weekly drop-in classes in Guelph and Costa Rica, and finally in Toronto, at the Consciousness Explorers Clubs (CEC). The CEC does a fun summer retreat in that anyone can come to – contact us to get on our list.

I also recently finished writing v.2 of the CEC’s free “Community Practice Activation Kit“. The kit includes tips on how to write and guide meditation, how to work with meditation-related challenges, and lots of other practical information. Our hope is to inspire people around the world to start up their own practice groups, in a way that’s uniquely responsive to their local needs and context.

Gratitude

Finally, although I can’t respond to all the people who reach out, I do read every email. I especially enjoy reading brief notes from people whom I’ve helped, directly or indirectly. Life is short, and love keeps me trucking along.

Thank you, and good luck on all explorations!
