Jeff Bickford teaches meditation classes & consults with students from different places in the world, while maintaining his practice in Colorado Springs, CO. Jeff owns Peak Light Therapy & is a Feldenkrais teacher
He began spiritual practice with Pir Vilayat Khan, a Sufi teacher. After a number of years he turned to Buddhist practice, first in Zen, then with a Shingon Buddhist monk. Some years later he began practicing with Venerable Tenzin Kacho, which then led to many years of practice and study with Ken McLeod from the Shangpa/Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He completed Ken McLeod’s three year teacher development program and was authorized to teach.
Concurrently, he practiced and studied awareness in movement, beginning in the early ’70’s with Nikolais technique, which led to studies in Laban Movement Theory, Neuro- Linguistic Programming, the Pilates Method, and the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education. For 25 years, Jeff was a lighting designer for dance companies & choreographers in the United States and Canada. Jeff also was the choreographer/director of his own performance company based in Seattle WA. Jeff’s keen eye and knowledge of movement, space and light influences all of his teaching of meditation.
