Noon’s influences are varied, with an interest in all spiritualities: many retreats, mentorship & courses with Jaya Ashmore from Open Dharma since 2008, a main influence from early adulthood in the buddhist tradition of Ajahn Chah, Tibetan buddhism, sacred chanting, silent walking & movement.
He enjoys how the traditional & open spirituality practices meet as one in his heart. Noon’s varied life experience brings a listening with vibrancy, an alive practice he loves to share.
Connecting with curiosity & energy, with a sense of embodying spiritual practice through in depth body grounding meditations are some of Noon’s fields of exploration. He is transgendered… a two spirit person all in one.
