About Me

I have studied and practiced meditation since 1974 under the guidance of many great Tibetan Buddhist teachers. I have always aspired to follow the example of my main teacher Akong Rinpoche who showed me that it is possible to express spiritual values through practical action. I was a Teaching Fellow at the University of Aberdeen and I teach and develop mindfulness training programmes in the UK and Europe where participants appreciate my ability to communicate the subtle meaning and purpose of meditation practice in everyday language. In 2013, I co-founded the Hart Knowe Trust with the aim of “helping people so that they can help others”. In collaboration with the Mindfulness Initiative our Trust created the Innovations in Mindfulness Awards which was launched in 2022 to encourage innovation and celebrate the many wonderful projects that are making the benefits of mindfulness more accessible. I am currently involved with creating a meditation teacher training programme for Tergar International. A unique aspect of this programme is that it includes an experiential introduction to Enterprise, helping new teachers to create opportunities for Sharing their Treasure.
