Classes & Community

Community is an important and nourishing part of the personal growth process.   I offer a diverse array of opportunities for seekers to come together, explore, shed old ways of being and take substantial steps to stand in who they want to be.  Classes are always limited in size and are engaging and interactive, and give individuals the opporutnity to engage with their own transformation.   Study groups use texts as a basis for exploration, and past authors include Pema Chodron, Anthony DeMello, Thich Nhat Hanh, Alan Watts and Tara Brach.   

We have a community of sincere and welcoming individuals, and would love for you to join us.

    Join me every Friday for a fluid happy hour flow class centered around embodiment, intention and presence.

    “In his classes, Michael has guided me through the wisdom of spiritual teachers and helped me to implement these lessons in my life in a tangible way. Michael’s compassion, awareness, and intuition helped me to tap into my own. He has been an invaluable guide in my life.”

    “I’ve had the pleasure of being in numerous study classes with Michael.  He is thoughtful about the material and skillful at making everyone in the group feel seen and important.  He deftly weaves meditation techniques into the weekly meetings to keep everyone grounded and present.  I heartily recommend any course he teaches – he is a true gift!!!”

    “I found myself at a loss and in a fog of confusion and anxiety. My work and family life were in disarray, and I was not sure where to turn, so I enrolled in a study group with Michael.   Eight weeks later, I felt a new clarity and calm from the readings, the discussions, the meditations, and the community, all of which Michael guided with sensitivity, wisdom, humor, and ease.  I am so grateful for the experience and for the lessons learned.”
