Hello. My name is John. I was born in Yonkers, NY in a simple family that lived through larger than life tragedies to become real time heroes. My parents taught me alot about the resilience of human beings.
Now I am a meditator, teacher and coach. But mostly I’m a curious man, interested in how meditation and body mind awareness help solve problems and make the world a better place.
After working with my father as an electrican growing up, and modest successes as a professional musician, I went off to college, and discovered meditation at the psych lab there. My interest in it has guided me along since. It brought me to train in Buddhist monasteries in the UK and to Santacittarama in sunny Italy where I now live with my wife and son.
Since 1993, I have been making my living teaching mindfulness meditation, yoga and language and communication courses. Sometimes a client or organization will start with one module or another and then we find ways to integrate over time. But life is about cross-training, isn’t it, and finding ways to flourish in our families, on the job, and in our communities. If you want to read more, click here.
