My teacher and guide, Rascal

Like many Western practitioners, Jim came to Buddhism through meditation. He finds wonder in meditation’s unique ability to help us see the world in a preternatural way, and with an open heart. He uses meditation as part of his writing routine, to both clear his mind and open to new insights.

Jim is available for speaking or teaching engagements, to discuss writing, meditation or Buddhism. Contact me here on the site.

Thank you.
