I'm the Programs Director for Dawn Mountain Center for Tibetan Buddhism, and I've been practicing meditation since 1997 and teaching it since 2004.  In 2015 I received my PhD in Religious Studies with an emphasis on contemplative philosophy from Rice University.  I enjoy teaching meditation in part because it's been so valuable in my own growth as a person--and in part because every time I teach a course, I also learn more and deepen my own practice.  The Supports for Meditation course draws on my experience in the Thai and Tibetan traditions of Buddhism to offer a secular presentation of meditation as a way to cultivate certain skills of the mind.
