About Me


I’m Stephen.

Here’s absolutely everything.

What am I up to these days?

Traveling the USA and Canada, leading relational awareness (aka. “Circling“) retreats, tech consulting for multiple conscious businesses, integrating several years of Buddhist meditation training and two decades of technical systems mastery, all with an orientation toward service and collective healing. Recently I trained for over a year as a Resident at MAPLE in northern Vermont. Also I just completed the 200-hour CircleAnywhere Level Up program and certified as a Relatefulness facilitator.

The Meaning Crisis is no joke, and I am keen to explore the intersection of relational meditation practices and classical Dharma as a catalyst for positive individual and social transformation. I have recently led relational retreats for Dharma Gates and Circling Victoria, and in the past I have served as a facilitator and community organizer for the Austin Authentic Relating community, served many Vipassana courses, and volunteered with Permaculture and Ecovillage events around the world.

In 2023, I intend to continue exploring this potent intersection by organizing events, retreats, and residential deep dives around North America. Collaboration ideas welcome! Doing this Together matters, perhaps now more than ever. 🀝
