My name is John. I was born and raised in and around NYC. My family taught me alot about resilience. I can tell you more when we meet. But before cross-training was a thing, I was doing it.
I’ve been an electrican, had modest successes as a professional musician, and workerd in mental health. My interest in meditation has guided me along since I discovered it at the psych lab in college in the 70s. It brought me to train in Buddhist monasteries in the UK in the 80s and to then to Santacittarama in 1990.
Since coming to Italy where I still live, I have been teaching English, mindfulness meditation and yoga in companies, schools and for private students. But mostly I’m a curious man, interested in how meditation and body mind awareness helps solve problems, helps people learn and change and make the world a better place. Now I’m moving into the on-line space.
All of my adult life I have been using mindfulness meditation as a tool to explore how we can flourish in our families, as co-workers, and as members of our communities. It’s also a part of how I work with language learners.
