Hello. I’m Daniel.


I am a Zen Meditation practitioner and teacher; Founder and Guiding Teacher at Fountain City Meditation,   www.fountaincitymeditation.com ; a board member and ordained dharma teacher at Dharma Winds Zen Sangha, and co-owner at The Tattooed Buddha. 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
