Welcome to Bodhi&Bass!

artsyMy name is Mark and I’m happy you’re here! I am a Buddhist practitioner, classical musician and Zen Priest in training. Because my goal is to realize and express Enlightenment (Bodhi) in daily activities (for me that’s most often playing the bass), I called this organization – Bodhi&Bass.

Simply put, my mission is to be, and to help others be truly happy, stress-free human beings in your everyday life. And the good news is, you don’t have to turn into some glassy-eyed hippy! Basically, we strive to bring you Everyday Buddhism for Everyone.

If you’re brand new to all of this, start by reading what Buddhist Practice is about. Once you’re done, check out the many resources available here to help you on your way:
