Kei is a mindfulness meditation practitioner and certified instructor by  MNDFL with 300 hours training in 2016. Their practice is rooted in Vipassana (insight) meditation within Theravada Buddhist tradition. Their big influence in Mahasi tradition came from Steven Smith, Michele McDonald, and Jesse Vaga-Frey at Vipassana Hawai’i. They have also studied Bhikkhu Analayo’s Satipatthana course, and sat with Sayadaw U Tejania on a retreat.

Kei shares the practice free of charge, supported with freely offered generosity from the people and organizations. They have been working with non-profit organization, agencies, Broadway actors, crews, LGBTQ community, and social workers. Any interests in having Kei for a class at studio or company, please contact.

They grew up in a Buddhist/Shinto family in Japan. But it was in New York where they found meditation through yoga practice in 2008.  They started the daily mindfulness practice in 2014.
