Neil McKinlay is a Senior Teacher in the Dharma Ocean lineage. A longtime student of Reggie Ray, Neil draws from this extensive training relationship to present somatic meditation in a wide range of contexts in Victoria, BC and elsewhere.

Seeing the body as the ground of well-being and fulfillment, the mindfulness-awareness practice of somatic meditation develops our capacity to receive experience without judgement or agenda. As this capacity grows - as we become more embodied - we discover the relaxation many of us long for and a truth many already intuit: that our bodies and lives are invaluable sources of wisdom and guidance.

This quality of discovery and revelation lies at the heart of all Neil’s events. In every class, workshop, and retreat, he offers opportunities for us to touch innate human goodness and welcome this into our everyday lives.
