Greg Scharf


Greg Scharf began meditating in 1992 and has been teaching residential meditation retreats since 2007, including the annual Three-Month Retreat at IMS, where he is a core teacher. In his teaching Greg emphasizes the understanding that meditation is fundamentally an exploration of nature and natural processes. He also stresses the critical importance of bringing the qualities of kindness, compassion and a sense of humor to practice. Currently living in the high country of northern Arizona, Greg's love of nature and the outdoors deeply informs both his practice and teaching.
