Oops, you seem to have caught me at a bad time
I am currently away on a long retreat to deepen my own meditation practice. I will be back in September 2020, and will have limited access to internet until then.
In the meantime, feel free to look around!
You made it! What's Next?

"RJ is an authentic mindfulness teacher. He treats each person with respect, compassion, gentleness and understanding." - Rosa, Middle School Teacher, Mountlake Terrace, WA
"RJ is open, warm hearted and knowledgable. I felt he was able to meet me right where I was in my own experience and broaden my understanding of a variety of meditation practices, from a simple concentration practice, to an open awareness practice to cultivation practices. I would whole heartedly recommend him as a guide and coach."

What is Mindfulness?
"Mindfulness is paying attention in the present moment on purpose non-judgmentally." - Jon Kabat-Zinn
Here's an 8 minute video of me defining mindfulness during a workshop I co-led with a friend and colleague of mine in March of 2019. In my own words, I break down Jon Kabat-Zinn's succinct definition of mindfulness.
