Upcoming Events ︎

Peter has been invited to speak at TEDx Boulder 2019. 

Peter will be examining how our productivity-focused society and tech culture prioritizes output over awareness. A byproduct of this attitude is the conflation of meditation practices with ‘self-optimization’.

Instead of adding more to our self-improvement to-do list, we can instead regard meditation as a tool that reveals our immediate experience - discomfort and all - as a reliable source of well-being and problem-solving. Hope to see you there!
