Daniel has been practicing Buddhism since 2003. Starting out in the Tibetan Rime tradition he learned from diverse teachers of various lineages. He then practiced as a Novice Monk in the Korean Zen tradition of Seung Sahn.

He now studies and practices as a Priest/Teacher of Chan Buddhism (Linji Lineage of HsuYun). He also teaches regularly at The Open Heart Project and He’s a co-owner of the website The Tattooed Buddha

Daniel is the founder and guiding teacher of Fountain City Meditation, a floating meditation community in Kansas City that is dedicated to showing helping spread meditation practice out into the world to help people learn how to be more fully present and authentic in their lives.

He’s trying to offer many of the services people get at temples here, online.
