Bill was my first contact in the Trillium world and I knew immediately while participating under his guidance, that this was the right place. He has knowledge and deep personal experience in several spiritual traditions, which have shaped and enhanced his work as a Trillium Teacher and as a result, I have benefited tremendously.
As helpful as his knowledge has been, his open and generous heart, which are so evident and available have been most important. He has supported and guided me with clarity and love as whole being awakening has come alive through my life and for this, I am forever grateful.
Bill is a powerful teacher who has effectively guided a number of students on their awakening journey. His teaching style is profound, irreverent, enormously insightful, and frequently hysterically funny. He is a long-time practitioner of several spiritual traditions, and he brings that great knowledge and depth to his students. Bill’s feedback is valuable because he is always vulnerably honest and acknowledges the divinity even when addressing aspects of our human selves that are often messy and difficult. He meets the other where they are and with compassion and love.
Trillium Teacher and colleague
I worked with Bill privately for about two years after the loss of a dear friend. We initially talked about my loss, but it eventually became a study on how to feel more embodied and present in my day-to-day life. During that time I cried, laughed, raged – and through it all, Bill was present with me. He created an amazing container in which I could just show up as I was. That in itself is a rare and wonderful gift! His advice was often both totally unexpected and right on the mark. He has a way of getting to the heart of the matter from a fresh, new perspective. He is a bright light in this world!
Teacher and Author
I wanted to let you know that the weekly meditation classes you conduct, for the Fund staff, have been greatly appreciated by the participants, as reflected by the surveys.
Not only have staff learned how to do meditation and better understand the benefits of it on the body and mind, but some have also started to meditate on their own and are exploring options outside their workplace.
Here is a quote from one such survey:
” This class has been very helpful in not allowing stress to control my life and to appreciate the simple things in life”.

When I first met Bill, I was struck by the profound openness in his eyes and smile. As I got to know him very deeply over time through intensive work together at Waking Down in Mutuality events I led in NYC, I became increasingly impressed by his compassion, wisdom, kindness, transparency, humor, intelligence, dedication to practice and liberation, and discernment. Bill is someone who has absolutely walked the path and derived tremendous benefit from it, and has so much to share about real-life transformation. He attunes marvelously to each person and situation, is not afraid to speak his mind, and shares with generosity and skill. I most highly recommend his services; it is a great pleasure to spend time around Bill doing anything at all, but especially to engage with him in this work that is so dear to his heart.

Bill is a gifted teacher
His experience informs his insightful understanding of the problems we all face. I have found his guidance to be uniquely helpful and comforting.
He has been a great companion on this journey!
Establishing a schedule of daily meditation practice helps me to clear my thoughts and think objectively when I’m under stress. In Bill’s class I learned a series of gentle, practical methods - focusing on breath, walking and yoga as anchors to achieve this.
Bill has helped me be more reflective in the present moment and more patient overall. His class has helped me to not overreact in difficult situations. Being in the moment adds to your life.
Professor of Nursing
Bill has helped me understand that meditation is a way to unplug and refocus. I have tapped into feelings of peacefulness and joy and learned that no matter what I am struggling with: it is better to not try so hard to control it and remember that difficult moments pass.
