About The Teacher

I first got interested in meditation through a school friend of mine who went on to become a monk in Thailand. I left the UK 20 years ago, ending up in Japan for several years where I met Clear Sky’s founding teachers through one of their students – and a founding member of Clear Sky – John Munroe.

I’ve lived at Clear Sky for long periods since 2009 and also served as Treasurer and Board Member for five years. I now offer a weekly meditation and dharma class in nearby Kimberley.

Living or spending time at Clear Sky puts you in all kinds of roles. I’ve cooked for 30 people, presented at AGMs, written blogs and created budgets, pulled weeds and repaired fences. And I can now see clearly that where I thrived and where I’ve struggled can be directly related to each of our new principles in some way. Can’t wait to share them with you!

I’m now Clear Sky’s head copywriter and an active member of the Business Development team.  I love playing golf here in the picturesque Rockies, though the golf season is painfully short! When I’m not pounding the magnetic dartboard in the Clear Sky office, I also earn a living as a copywriter.
