As a child, Toby’s Awakening began with Yom Kippur fasting, wood wandering, and Shamanic Sweat Lodges. In 2011, Toby met Soryu Forall and began practicing, teaching, and researching mindfulness more seriously. As a practitioner, he likes mining his emotional body sensations as a source of wisdom and using his physical senses to – like a ninja – be hyper aware of his surroundings. As a teacher, Toby specializes in Self Actualization and working with people who suffer from anxiety. Toby has taught mindfulness in a variety of settings including: in-person and phone-based retreats, after school programs, and college campuses.While at Vassar College, Toby conducted a Social Studies research project entitled, Reflection, Reproduction, and Challenging at the Brooklyn Zen Center: Complexifying Cultural Capital, Gentrification, the Mindfulness Movement, and Scale and a Cognitive Science research project entitled, Breath, Self, and World: Pioneering Meditation Pedagogy. Toby’s sense of Responsibility includes Social Justice, Political Geography, and the power of live music. Toby joined CML in July of 2014 and is in heaven.
