Buddhist Teaching Background

Zen Roshi
I am authorised to teach in two different Buddhist traditions - Zen Buddhism and the Vipassana Insight tradition. I have been practicing Buddhist meditation for over 30 years and received dharma transmission in 1996 in the Diamond Sangha Zen tradition. I am the Spiritual Director and resident teacher of the Sydney Zen Centre, and lead regular intensive Zen Sesshins in Sydney & Melbourne. I presently supervise four other Apprentice teachers in the Zen tradition.

Vipassana Insight Meditation teacher
I am also a senior teacher in the Vipassana Insight tradition and lead regular retreats throughout Australia, New Zealand and India. I am the founder and guiding teacher of the Kuan Yin Meditation Centre Inc., in Lismore which is a dedicated non sectarian space for spiritual practice. In 1999 I set up a Vipassana Insight group in Sydney called the Blue Gum Sangha which meets weekly on the north shore. I mentor and support several other Apprentice teachers in the Insight tradition.

I have been a psychotherapist for 20 years and have a private therapy practice in Mosman, Sydney.

I have a B.A.Soc.Sci, from Charles Sturt University, and a Masters of Applied Psychotherapy & Neuroscience from U.T.S. I am a graduate of Hakomi Integrative Psychotherapy.

and the four divine qualities of heart and mind:
- loving-kindness,
- compassion,
