Ryan Oelke is a dharma and meditation teacher, partner, stepdad, linguist, and co-founder of Buddhist Geeks.
About: I am a co-founder and teacher of Buddhist Geeks and a fully certified teacher in Judith Blackstone’s Realization Process. I have an MSEd in counseling psychology and I’m a contemplative teacher of awakening, healing, and embodiment. I have 20 years experience in meditation, particularly in the Tibetan Buddhist and Dzogchen lineages. I am also the the founder of Awakening in Life.
Ryan teaches an integral path of embodied, responsive presence and invites others into the mystery of their own lived experience and embodiment. His approach is grounded in the foundation of waking up, and includes cleaning up (healing), growing up, and showing up in the world. Ryan teaches meditation and a way of living dedicated to revealing natural presence and awakening in each moment of our lives, regardless of how it appears to us.
He lives in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, North Carolina with his partner Alyssa and step-daughter Fiona.
