Evan Fabrikant ~ Meditation Facilitator
About me: I was first drawn to meditation in 2009 after attending a New Years retreat hosted by Spirit Rock in the tradition of Insight. I discovered how powerful meditation could be, yet found my experiences too intense and strange to navigate productively. Not long after, I settled into a path of practice taught by Richard Shankman, which utilizes skillful empirical observation and natural inclination to integrate Insight, Concentration and Mindfulness in the service of freedom from suffering. Since then I have attended numerous retreats, practiced in the western traditions of Insight (Vipāssana), Concentration (Samādhi), and Soto Zen, and continue to study under Richard Shankman. These teachings are a priceless gift to me, and I intend to share that gift with all who would find it of benefit.
