Hello. I’m Daniel.


I am a Buddhist Meditation and Mindfulness teacher. My background is rooted in the Zen Tradition and I was empowered to teach through the Dharma Winds Zen Sangha. I have extensive experience leading meditation events, giving dharma talks, and doing koan study. I lead a weekly meditation group as well as taking private students. I’m the Founder and Guiding Teacher of Fountain City Meditation. I live in Kansas City and a majority of my teaching takes place there.

I believe meditation is about learning to be more genuine, seeing the world clearly, and being more fully present in our lives. My goal is to meet people where they are and give them a little guidance and encouragement.

I take a simple and humble approach to sharing meditation and other mind training practices. I share these in public events and in individual coaching.

To me this path is about being real, about putting down all the baggage you’re carrying and facing yourself as you really are.  It’s about being fully open and genuine.

I lead public events and I’m available for private one-on-one meditation instruction as well.

Reach out to me if:

-You’d like guidance on how to deepen your practice

-You want me to come speak at your event

-You’re also a teacher and you’re interested in collaborating
