Influenced by the words of Ram Dass, my heartfelt intention is to offer a safe and supporive space which is culturally responsive, trauma-informed, bereavement-sensitive and thanatologically-inspired.

The Yoga for Grief classes that I took from you changed my life and added tremendously to my coping skillset. About a year after the second class I attended, I began caring for my grandmother during her end of life process, and I felt calmer and more stable because of what I learned and experienced from you! -Meagan Masingill
"I am deeply impressed with Ken’s post-meditation integration work on so many levels. I attribute his effectiveness to his ability to actively listen in a compassionate and non-judgmental way. Before and during the meditation session, he mindfully observes and adapts to both my physical and psychological needs. As a mental health therapist, Ken carries a breadth of experience and specialized skillsets to guide me through the integration process. For me, the post-meditation integration process can be a daunting task as it can put me into a vulnerable state. Ken creates the opportunity for me to be in a safe space to further process my internal awakenings and explore the conscious doors that were opened during the meditation session. I always appreciate his genuine presence and availability for subsequent follow up and consultation sessions." -Trung
"Ken is the embodiment of his values - and his healing presence is full of love, compassion and joy. He is deeply caring and friendly and his counsel is wise, consistently bringing a perspective that comes from experience and consideration. My life has benefitted greatly from his counseling and teaching. He is one of the few teachers I know who truly walks his talk , and has fun doing it!"
