Those who would like to ask questions about spiritual practice are encouraged to write: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I may not have the time available to respond to each email, but I will read your message and, if I can contribute to a dialogue, and have the time available to write back, I'll respond to questions.
As a teacher I do offer one-on-one mentoring though, given the present overload of inquiries, I'm no longer maintaining a waiting list and the process is no longer offered by request.
When I do work with a practitioner individually, its based on a weekly dialogue that focuses on navigating life's setbacks and opportunities, bringing the practices of mindfulness into daily life and maintaining inspiration and structure for a fulfilling spiritual practice. A typical dialogue include starts with a brief overview of one's current experiences and challenges. Often the work focuses on exploring tools to work with obsessive thoughts and memories, compulsive addictions, fears and general anxiety, limiting self-judgments and other common challenges.
