Benches made with love.


I want to help people rediscover clarity and compassion. One bench at a time.


I started 1000 Benches as a way to extend my own meditation practice, by enabling others to rediscover clarity about their lives and compassion for themselves and others.  Each bench I make is carefully crafted and marked with a unique number.  These benches are available to everyone.  And, select benches will be built and sent to those who may need them most: key influencers and political leaders who could surely benefit from a daily sitting practice.

A truly striking and comfortable bench and I love helping to send benches to people like Putin.

I love my bench and I love what it stands for more than anything else. And the crane!

There's a bench for everyone.
