Steve Cope


For 20 years, Steve Cope has dedicated himself to the practice and study of meditation.
He has received instruction from some of the world's most respected meditation teachers and has deepened his understanding and experience of the practice through many long retreats.

Trained primarily in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Steve has a warm, light-hearted and joyful approach. He communicates the wisdom of meditation in ways that are down-to-earth, practical, and relevant to our busy, modern lives.
