is the founder and guiding teacher of the Portland Insight Meditation Center.  He brings 40 years of Buddhist Dharma practice to his teaching and therapy.  He is a Dharma successor to Ruth Denison in the lineage of the Burmese master U Ba Khin. Robert is a member of the first wave of lay Theravada Buddhist teachers who brought Buddhism from Asia to America.  He uses humor, poetry, music and drumming to present ancient Buddhist teachings in ways that can be readily assimilated by the Western mind. Robert teaches meditation for everyday life, bringing lovingkindness and wisdom to intimate relationships, parenting, work, and the cultivation of engaged and compassionate community.
