Our ancestors once turned to the stars for answers. We can do so again through the lens of science. We can learn and harmonize with the laws of the universe. Become one with yourself, others and the world.

Who is Sensei Tony? One of the leading voices in contemporary spirituality, his first personal spiritual experience took place in a little Methodist church in New York when he was only 7 years old. His mother found him hiding in a small sacristy where the minister kept his robes. In a timeless moment, he told her that he was called to help others awaken. When Tony was ten he was introduced to the liberating teachings of Mindfulness. As an adult, he studied with various spiritual teachers (such as Bernie Glassman and Alfred Bloom) and read Buddhism at Harvard and Oxford, receiving a Master’s Degree in Theology from the Episcopal Divinity School and a doctorate from the Graduate Theological Foundation.

He is the Founder and Presiding Minister of the Order of the Dragonfly, Ministerial and Community Affiliate member of the Zen Peacemaker Order and Community Affiliate of the Shin Dharma Network. He is the author of The Book of Common Meditation (2003/2019), Free Your Mind: The Four Directions System of Mindfulness (2017), The Invisible Sun (2010/2019), and Free Your Mind: The Precepts of an Awakened Life (2019).
