David Seybert

David is a certified Ananda Meditation teacher, spiritual counselor and Ananda Yoga (RYT200) teacher. David also teaches tai chi and qigong, and recently completed a week-long, silent retreat immersed in Buddhist vipashyana (mindfulness) practices, guided by a traditionally-trained Tibetan lama.

David has been on a spiritual path since several awakening experiences in his teenage years.  In college, he completed a B.A. degree in Philosophy, with a special focus on Eastern religions. He also began to study meditation: learning tai chi, qigong and yoga and living in a Zen Buddhist monastery. Later, while pursuing a career and raising a family, he continued to study and practice different techniques and traditions of meditation. David recently retired from his position as a director of the Center at Ananda Laurelwood in order to devote his time and energy more fully to teaching and practice.
