MeditationMandali Experience Teacher
Steve has dedicated himself to practise and study of meditation for over 20 years. He has received instruction from some of the world's most respected meditation teachers and has deepened his understanding and experience through many long retreats.

Trained primarily in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Steve’s mission is to share the essence of what he has learnt in a way that is non-religious, accessible and relevant to our busy, modern lives. He has a very down-to-earth, practical style and a relaxed and humorous approach.

Steve is the founder of The Meditation Cafe where he teaches online and in Amsterdam. He holds regular retreats at the Mandali Retreat Centre in Italy and is co-founder of the Bodhi online meditation platform. His passion is to find ways to combine online tools with in-person training and practice so as to provide the best possible support for modern meditators.

Steve is also co-founder of the international charity Mind with Heart, which trains teachers and students in sustainable wellbeing, emotional health and social connection.
