Nat was first introduced to meditation practice 20 years ago within the context of his own therapeutic journey and since that time has studied, practiced and taught mindfulness based practices in Canada and the US. Nat has taught and mentored others within the context of traditional Buddhist retreats, workshops on mindfulness and compassionate communication practices, and individual, couple and family therapy sessions. Nat has also explored these themes in his academic work having conducted experimental psychological research on the effects of mindfulness and emotional awareness in reducing aggressive responses to goal threats as well as exploring how somatic awareness and embodied mindfulness practices can be integrated into couple and family therapy.
