I welcome open, awareness-based explorations of this aware presence here-now, questioning all beliefs and seeing how suffering is perpetuated.

My approach is simple, direct, and down-to-earth.  I point to this present moment recognition of the aware presence we already are and the simplicity of being present just this moment, exactly as it is with relaxed and raw listening.

Individual meetings in person with me may be arranged and are held at Juniper Level Botanic Garden in Raleigh, NC.   I also offers individual sessions by phone, Skype, or FaceTime for those outside the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area.


Events in Raleigh, NC

I facilitate monthly self inquiry gatherings on Saturdays with fellow pilgrim Jenny in Raleigh, NC. These casual gatherings of spiritual and philosophical friends include silence, a talk, and group dialog. Attendees are encouraged to speak from their heart and direct experience and insight, not from second-hand ideas and beliefs. Read more here: Monthly Gatherings for Meditative Inquiry


Triangle Inquiry Group

I occasionally attend and facilitate the Wednesday evening meetings of the Triangle Inquiry Group…more often I attend these meetings in the Spring and Summer months than in the Fall or Winter. If you are interested in visiting the TIG for the first time, please contact Doran at this link.
