Join Couchsurfing to see Mathew’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a Zen Buddhist practitioner and received Bodhisattva ordination in June, 2017. I am also an artist and a teacher of art and meditation. I love chatting and listening to music. I have been blessed with many amazing friends and think that friendship and trust are the most powerful things in the world.
I am trained in Ayurevedic Yoga Massage. I have a strong interest in healing techniques and would like to learn more.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I joined Couchsurfing because it fits my outlook on the world perfectly... sharing, giving and receiving. If we cannot do that, we will live in a small, guarded, fearful world. As the world closes in, we must open it up again and again!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I bought a bicycle in the north of France, cycled to the south and, then I sat on my own, meditating 5 hours a day and reading Ulysses by James Joyce for the remaining daylight hours. There was an apple tree, a blackberry bush a can of fish a day and some crackers. I went crackers.
