Hello. I’m Daniel.


I live in Kansas City. I’m a meditation practitioner and teacher.

I believe meditation practice 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 became a Zen Priest in 2018. I’m affiliated with the Dharma Winds Zen Tradition

I created Fountain City Meditation as a project to take meditation practice out into the world.

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.


Reach out to me if:

-You’d like to deepen your practice

-You’re looking for guidance

-You want me to come speak at your event

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