About the SkillfulMeans methodology & meditation teachers

We Don’t Use A Generic Approach To Wellbeing

Many mindfulness practitioners sit in meditation every day but have no idea how to apply their practice to daily life. We’ll help you take your insights and practice off the cushion and into your relationships, parenting, performance, career, health and fulfill your personal vision of well-being.

Meet Your Meditation Teacher

Dr. William Jackson

Former Buddhist Monk, Entrepreneur & Mindful Therapist

While meditating as a monk in remote jungle huts for 12 to 14 hours a day, William developed a fascination with how people living fully engaged modern lives could experience the life-changing benefits of meditation. This calling led him to leave the monastery, study psychology, and develop the SkillfulMeans approach to complete wellbeing. It is the goal of SkillfulMeans to help you infuse insight into every facet of your life.
