David Chernikoff, M.Div., L.C.S.W., began the study and practice of meditation in 1971. He started teaching insight meditation in 1988. Mr. Chernikoff also trained as a yoga teacher at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York, and he completed the Community Dharma Leader program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California.
Mr Chernikoff’s teaching has been influenced by senior teachers from the Insight Meditation Society and Spirit Rock, Tibetan teachers with whom he studied during a 3-year stay in Nepal, and spiritual guides from other contemplative traditions—most notably Ram Dass, Father Thomas Keating, and Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.
