This meditation retreat brings principles from the Alexander TechniqueFocusing, and hands-on work to meditation practice for a unique and deeply transformative program.

Last April 2021, I was interviewed by Jonathan Bastian on the radio show A Life Examined on KCRW, an NPR station in L.A about Embodied Listening. We talked about how listening to ourselves helps us better hear what others have to say. My interview is 21:53 into the podcast. Check it out!
