Hello. I’m Daniel.

I live in Kansas City. I’m a meditation practitioner and teacher. I’m the founder of Fountain City Meditation, an ordained Chan Buddhism teacher in the Dharma Winds Zen Tradition

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. I I believe meditation practice is about learning to be more genuine, seeing the world clearly, and being more fully present and engaged in our lives.

My goal is to meet people where they are and give them a little guidance and inspiration.

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.
