I was born and grew up in the NYC area. Thirty years have now passed since I first came to Italy.
For most of these years, I have been teaching English at local public schools and multinationals doing business in Italy. When not colloborating on TV projects with RAI Edu and teaching and writing for the Italian Ministry of Education MIUR, I spend my time coaching and teaching mindfulness in seminars or training courses as part of an integrated professional development program like the ones I did at Nexans USA, Tetra Pak Italy, and S4BT, and teaching mindfulness meditation and yoga at Centro Sati and around Italy.
People say I should write a book; for now there’s this video and a free condensed version of my story, a guided meditation and bibliography here to help you begin exploring mindfulness meditation on your own (anche in Italiano).
I got my first formal meditation training in the 1970s from a college professor doing research on its effects; then his assistant got me going in the right direction. I had great teachers and valuable experiences with traditional meditation and clinical applications in the forty years since. I started teaching as part of my job as a Mental Health Worker in a psych hospital in Boston, and then decided to live in Buddhist monasteries in the West to deepen my understanding. I came to Italy in 1990 to help set-up Santacittarama Buddhist monastery and stayed.
Now I’m exploring the on-line space for more opportunities to share.
