Classes teach practices that can be done by anyone, regardless of spiritual tradition. Most classes do not require previous meditation experience.

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.
