Since my teens, I’ve been passionately interested in ways to connect the cultivation of inner peace with creating peace in the outer world. In my 20s and 30s, I worked as a pianist/composer, often using mindfulness in my work with dancers, actors, and other musicians.  I’ve continued to make use of my musical background in my work as a clinical psychologist – creating a musical for special needs adults, and combining music and movement in various classes I’ve co-taught with my wife, Jan.  Jan and I have been fascinated by recent developments in neuroscience, and have been incorporating them in our teaching of mindfulness.
