Ian Wilkes is a yoga and Buddhist meditation teacher from Norwich Vermont. As a young adolescent Ian received the teachings of the Dharma and meditation from his mother and other well known masters such as Thicht Naht Hahn. When Ian graduated high school he left Vermont to pursue a career in business in New York City where he lived and worked as a hotel manager in Times Square. After 6 years of a material wealth based life he decided to sell everything, quit everything, pack a bag and begin the journey home. In the years to come Ian traveled extensively throughout South America, Southeast Asia and India seeking the truths of our human experience through the teachings of ancient wisdom and his own experience. From living in silence with Buddhist monks in northern Burma to being an apprentice to indigenous plant shamans in the Amazon to living in yoga ashrams throughout India, Ian brings a unique and dynamic approach to opening the heart, grounding the mind in the present and creating the conditions for insight by utilizing healing practices from around the world along with his own creation of medicinal music.  In 2016 Ian created the grassroots charity organization Anahata Ma which brings teachers of healing practice from all over the world together to share their gifts by donation to raise money to build clean water systems and support a small orphanage in southern India.  Ian continues to travel globally both as a student and teacher without a place of permanent residence.
