I am deeply grateful to have met Ron on a meditation app when he was just beginning Mindfulness In Blue Jeans a year ago. I’d not normally have driven an hour to go the meet-up he’d invited me to, but then I read his story. Our similar experiences with overcoming anxiety and our shared interest in social psychology drew me to his class to see what more I could discover. I already lived a life of mindfulness, but I’ve learned a lot from Ron about the effect biology has on the mind when it comes to anxiety, which has given me one of my favorite “a-hah” moments to date. Ron’s now like a big brother to me, and I highly recommend him to anyone interested in meditation and learning more about themselves from someone who’s truly genuine and enjoys adding humor into his work and teaching.
