Sean began meditating in his mid-twenties and spent about a decade building a disciplined spiritual practice that eased some of his suffering, but that he did not enjoy very much. Then in 2012, with his second child on the way, he refocused his practice on something he had been actively ignoring: the heart practices of loving-kindness, forgiveness, and compassion. This was a game-changer. As he began to apply the balm of love to his own wounded heart, he found himself in a process of seeing more and more opportunities to love and be loved. Like seeing a three-dimensional image emerge in a stereogram, a truth became apparent: every moment is an occasion for love. As a meditation teacher, Sean has become especially interested in bringing the Mindful Self-Compassion program to other men who have been conditioned to label their need to be loved as weakness and to shrink from, scoff at, or harden against the idea of holding themselves with tenderness and compassion. Sean is a certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist and is also interested in bringing MSC to couples, parents, and families. In recent years, Sean has been honored to assist Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer at their annual MSC Intensive at Esalen and to serve as an online mentor for the Sounds True program Power of Self-Compassion.
