I’ve been working with Nick as my meditation instructor for about 5-6 years. His patience and gentleness, his commitment to the Dharma, to what is real, and to the great compassion that arises out of that, might only be surpassed by his commitment to his students, to guiding and supporting their journey – my journey – as students, as practitioners, as human beings. It has been beyond inspiring and empowering for me. It continues to increase my confidence in myself as a student, as a practitioner, as a human being, and is giving me a capacity to be with myself and my experience, no matter what it is, with that same gentleness and patience that Nick brings to his own practice and to working with his students. I’m just so grateful.
