Jesse is resident teacher on Hawaii Island for Vipassana Hawai’i. His teaching aims to inspire the skills, determination, and faith necessary to realize the deepest human freedom. A student of Michele McDonald, his approach is rooted in the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma and encourages an exploration of the relationship between ethics, insight, and action.

Dana – In accordance with tradition, all Vipassana Hawai’i teachers offer their guidance and teachings free of charge and are supported through the freely-offered generosity of students and supporters. We believe that this commitment helps keep the purity of the teachings alive and thriving, as it has for millennia. Please consider supporting the teacher in whatever way you can.
