Meditation is a process of discovery that supports a fresh and wakeful conversation with our human experience.

In this, the whole world is viewed as our monastery.

All aspects of our lives – on and off the cushion – are invited into the conversation.

People from all walks of life are welcome here.

Whether secular or religious, an experienced or a novice meditator – everyone can find their entry point.

Jess has engaged in study of Buddhist teachings in both the Tibetan and Insight tradition.  Jess’s teachings have been shaped by solo exploration, trial and error and classical and experiential immersions.  She is grateful for time spent learning with other artists, dharma teachers and mavericks who illuminate a unique integral voice. She funnels classical teachings through her own poetics to talk to modern day people’s concerns and needs. She holds deep regard for feminine principles and the ground of the body.

“The Dharma, known as the great leveller, plants us back down, shoulder to shoulder, in our shared situation. The Buddhist teachings are sometimes known as going against the grain. The marker for our ‘progress’ is not marked by status but in uncovering inherent qualities such as razor – sharp wisdom, tenderness, congruency, bravery and clear seeing.”

Jess has been authorised to teach within the Insight tradition and Open Dharma.
