About Michael Ciborski:

Michael is a lineage holding Dharma teacher in the Buddhist tradition of Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh. He lived as a monk for seven years in Plum Village, France, and has worked intimately with Thich Nhat Hanh and the monastic community to organize, support and offer meditation retreats around the world. A skilled musician, he informally studied voice training and chanting of several European and Asian traditions and served for several years as an English language chant master in the monastery. Michael also studies and practices in the tradition of Anthroposophy, begun by Rudolf Steiner. He finds great joy weaving together these two wonderful paths guided by two marvelous and awakened human beings.

After leaving the monastery in 2003, Michael returned to the US and along with his wife Fern Dorresteyn, has helped to establish an intentional spiritual community and mindfulness center in Southern New Hampshire known as Morning Sun.
