About this pro

   After studying and practicing meditation for the past 31 years, Christopher is now the director of the Such Sweet Thunder meditation program. Chris teaches from the belief that the practice of meditation can bring about a much needed inner peace and harmony.

Christopher created the meditation school “Such Sweet Thunder” in order to provide authentic meditation instruction in an easy accessible fashion. Without having to join any particular group, religion, temple, church, or belief system. In fact, they way meditation is taught by Chris, it can be used as an accessory to deepen any spiritual tradition or with no spiritual tradition. The meditation outlined in Christopher’s book, also entitled “Such Sweet Thunder”, is found in many of the contemplative traditions, yet he teaches in a completely non-denominational fashion. 

Christopher has received formal training in Zen, Mahamudra, Dzochen from the Tibetan traditions, Vipassana and Vedanta from the Indian traditions, and Mindfulness and Shambhala from the relatively modern American traditions. He has attended numerous training retreats, taking on the life of a monk in monasteries in Nepal, New York, Colorado, and San Francisco, and is on his way to a two week retreat in India. 

Christopher has had the pleasure of teaching meditation worldwide. He has given formal meditation instruction in the Philippines, Malaysia, Wales, London, New York, and Colorado in addition to holding residency on Celebrity Cruise Lines. With the help of the internet Christopher also holds one-on-one lessons with students from all over the globe.

Having witnessed the Sept 11th incident in New York City, Christopher dedicates his life to these teachings with the hope of passing on the practice to others, with the intention of bringing about a new, more peaceful, loving and compassionate worldview.

Ive been studying various forms of meditation for thirty two years, including but not limited to, living as a monk for six months in a monestary, several meditation retreats and studying intensively in a one to one situation with world class teachers.

I charge on a sliding scale. $40-$65 per hour session.

After practicing meditation for so many years, a sense of compassion for others naturally grows. Teaching is the next step of practice.
