Classes teach practices that can be done by anyone, regardless of spiritual tradition. Most classes do not require previous meditation experience.
All classes are taught by John Blackburn, PhD. John has practiced meditation for over 45 years, practicing intensively with teachers in the Vipassana, Zen, and Dzogchen traditions. He has led the Knoxville Community of Mindfulness for over a decade and has also served on the board of directors for the Southern Dharma Retreat Center in Spring Creek, N.C. since 2006.
