Who am I?
I am a mindfulness teacher. I came across mindfulness through Buddhist meditation, and since 2005 I have done various long silent meditation retreats. I am rooted in the Insight Meditation tradition where I continue my development as a practitioner. I am participating in the teacher training programme with the Bodhi College.
After finishing my philosophy degree in 2007 I moved to the UK, where I am based since then. I am training to become a philosophical counsellor and I aim to use elements of the Western philosophical tradition that can complement mindfulness interventions.
What do I do?
I teach mindfulness courses for the general public, and have been teaching mindfulness retreats for Sharpham since 2015. For the OMC I teach the 5-day retreat, part of the Teacher Training Programme in MBCT for Latin American mental health professionals.
