Cliff’s mindfulness and meditation practice began while attending Grinnell College in the 70’s. In the 1980’s he was a meditation instructor under the guidance of Katagiri Roshi at the Minnesota Zen Center in Minneapolis. In 1989 he moved to Boulder, which enabled him to meet and practice with a wide variety of leading meditation teachers at Naropa University. Cliff has trained with Jon Kabat -Zinn in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. He is certified in the US and Japan as a Soto Zen Dharma Teacher.
Cliff has a passion for teaching mindfulness and meditation free from any set dogma or cultural affiliations. He regularly offers a secular “Just Meditation” class at The Meditation Place in Longmont, which he founded 4 years ago. His meditation practice has always been connected to his full time career as an accountant with corporations and non-profits, and his family life as a husband, parent and grandparent.
Cliff’s approach is to put foremost, the interests and needs of his clients, instead of presenting them with a pre-set teaching. He encourages and clarifies the practice of daily mindfulness . Cliff offers individual guidance with various meditative practices in a variety of settings. He is attuned to people just beginning these practices, and has often helped people with confusions that have arisen after previous meditation experiences.
