Miles Sherts

About The Teacher

Miles learned Insight Meditation in a Buddhist Monastery in Sri Lanka in 1976 and has led retreats since 1999. His teaching emphasizes present-moment awareness and practical tools for seeing truth directly for yourself. Miles has also practiced Conscious Communication and Conflict Resolution skills since 1978, and taught since 1990. He is passionate about viewing conflict as a means to deepen relationships and his teaching emphasizes practical skills for re-orienting yourself from a competitive mind-set to a cooperative one.

In addition, Miles spent ten years as a professional divorce mediator and realized that he preferred to teach couples to use communication skills before they split up, in order to create a healthy relationship in which both people’s needs are met. He has worked with couples since 1990 helping people who don't feel understood to assert themselves responsibly, while also listening supportively.

Miles is the founder of Sky Meadow Retreat, and author of Beyond Perception – A guide to meditation, Conscious Communication – A language of connection, and Conscious Communication for Couples - Transforming your relationship from adversaries to allies
