Hi! I'm a laid back teacher and I'm interested in making sure to explain things clearly and at your preferred pace.

The techniques I teach are secular and non-religious, however most meditation techniques have a religious background. I'm willing to talk about it with your preferred orientation. I teach an evidence-based approach supported by modern psychology and neuroscience, but I also understand the relationship of meditation practice in various religious traditions, primarily Buddhist and Christian. I'm not a spiritual counselor and I prefer to focus solely on the methodology and techniques involved. Most of my teaching is done in a secular format.

I've taught friends and family as well as co-workers with good results and I'm now teaching others locally and online. I'd love to share my knowledge and experience with you. Anyone can meditate! Let me show you how.

Mindfulness meditation allowed me to face my panic and severe fear of heights. Anyone can do this with training!

I attended several of Rusty's Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation sessions and found him to be eloquent, insightful, and patient. Rusty did a great job of laying a foundation for the skills needed to start my own personal journey into Mindfulness Meditation.

Rusty has a solid understanding of different meditation techniques and their practical benefits in everyday life. He's patient, precise, and has the ability to explain complicated topics to the everyday person. I would highly recommend taking lessons from him if you're interested in meditation without any confusing language.

Rusty is a great instructor. I took a mindfulness meditation class from him and he was able to explain what mindfulness is in an easy to understand way. In the class he also described how to apply the meditative techniques in a practical way and incorporate them into my daily routines. Would for sure recommend.
