A former professional singer, he teaches the interfaith perspective and core Buddhist practices at New York Insight Meditation Center, The New Seminary, One Spirit Interfaith Seminary, and Marymount College.

We live in a turbulent world in which we are often forced to respond on a dime to challenging or even life-altering situations. To react wisely in difficult moments one needs to be quick on one’s feet, but also quick of mind. In the book, Rev.
