I first became an interested yet self-taught meditator some thirty years ago while practising Aikido. Over the years since I have become interested in modern non-duality teachings and since 2012 have studied with Julian Daizan Skinner Roshi, a Zen Master in the Japanese Rinzai Zen tradition. With Daizan Roshi I completed both Meditation and Mindfulness teacher training and Zen Yoga teacher training. I will use a range of meditation techniques depending on the audience, from body scans to breath meditation to self-inquiry to mindful movement. The emphasis is very much on developing relaxation and awareness.
