The Word


"I had a regular meditation practice before I met Whit and I’ve worked with many teachers.  Whit took my practice to a whole new level.  He has taught me to go deeper and to go slower.  He added the gift of silence to my practice.  For me this has been a profound experience.  I’m very grateful for Whit, for his teachings, for his dedication to his practice and for his deep insights.  Regardless of where you are in your practice I highly recommend working with Whit."

"The first thing that struck me about Whit in my first yoga class with him was his enthusiasm and how he taught in a way that brought across his humbleness as a teacher of his knowledge. I feel fortunate that my path crossed with Whit's and I have now attended four of his meditation retreats and several workshops. The same qualities of humbleness and enthusiasm have remained with Whit and his devotion to his practice is inspiring.  His manner of patiently teaching, and his humour, have made my meditation practice accessible and successful.  Every time I sit and listen and practice with Whit I learn new insights that are changing my outlook on life and my relationship with our culture and society.  I look forward to my next chance to learn from Whit."

"It has been an honour to receive teachings from Whit over the last 10 years. The evolution of his teachings is served by a deeply committed personal practice and experience based inquiry into the heart-mind and body. He humbly offers incredible insights and gentle, dedicated guidance to others on their path. I appreciate his ability to translate profound philosophy in meaningful ways.  I came to vipassana after many years of study in other traditions because I trust Whit to hold space for all that might unfold without judgement, and to support the process with great integrity. As Whit says, come see for yourself."
