Individual Meditation And Dhamma Instruction
John is available for individual dhamma instruction and guidance in person, via telephone, and online video conference.
In person, individual sessions are at the Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown New Jersey.
If you feel that individual instruction will be helpful developing understanding of the Buddha’s Dhamma, please contact John through the contact form here: Email John
Fees are a sliding scale from $0 to $85 per hour.
Please do not let a current impermanent financial situation prevent you from learning and integrating the Dhamma.
I am more than happy to discuss this and find an arrangement that is equitable. Peace.
Providing freely accessible text, audio, and video content
takes time and is quite expensive.
If you find benefit here, please
My Dhamma articles and talks are based on the Buddha's teachings (suttas) as preserved in the Sutta Pitaka, the second book of the Pali Canon. I have relied primarily on Thanissaro Bhikkhu’s excellent and insightful translation of the Pali generously made freely available at his website Dhammatalks.org, as well as the works of Acharya Buddharakkhita, Nyanaponika Thera, John Ireland, Maurice Walsh, Hellmuth Hecker, and Sister Khema, among others, as preserved at Access To Insight.
Also, I have found Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations from Wisdom Publications Pali Canon Anthologies to be most informative and an excellent resource.
I have made edits to the suttas from these sources for further clarity, to modernize language, to minimize repetition, and maintain contextual relevance to Dependent Origination and Four Noble Truths.
