It has been years since I posted on this blog. I wanted to write a post to make this a sort of home page for people who are curious about me. Go to my bio page for more details. But basically:
I am a PhD student at Claremont School of Theology, a therapist resident at The Clinebell Institute, and an adjunct professor at University of The West. I am a member of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Order of Interbeing. At UWest I teach classes on Contemplative Practice, Buddhist Social Ethics, Service Learning, World Religions, and World Philosophies. Outside of UWest I teach meditation and from time to time give Dharma talks and lead retreats.
My research is focused on developing a Buddhist model of care and counseling that integrates Buddhism, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Critical Theory. My goal is to support the healing of individual and collective moral injury and trauma.
