Caverly Morgan

Caverly Morgan is a contemporary spiritual teacher, author, speaker, and nonprofit founder. She is the founder and Lead Contemplative of Peace in Schools—a nonprofit which created the nation’s first for-credit mindfulness class in public high schools. She is also the founder of Presence Collective, a community of cross-cultural contemplatives committed to personal and collective transformation.

Caverly blends the original spirit of Zen with a modern nondual approach. Her practice began in 1995 and has included eight years of training in a silent Zen monastery. She has been teaching contemplative practice since 2001.

Caverly speaks publicly at conferences on topics including contemplative practice, personal and collective transformation, social entrepreneurship, authentic leadership, and mindfulness education, and has been featured in publications such as Mindful magazine (as a cover subject) and The New York Times. Caverly is the author of A Kid’s Book About Mindfulness: Kids Are Ready (2020) and The Heart of Who We Are: Realizing Freedom Together (2022).

Caverly leads meditation retreats, workshops, and online classes internationally. She has been a teacher and presenter at the Science and Nonduality Conference, 1440 Multiversity, Sangha Live, Esalen, the Mind and Life International Symposium for Contemplative Research, Buddha at the Gas Pump, Open Circle, the New York Zen Center of Contemplative Care, and many more.

Prior to her pioneering efforts with Peace in Schools, Caverly worked for nonprofits serving people with special needs. An artist and educator, she brings insight, passion, warmth and humor to her transformative work with students of all ages and experience levels.

She is dedicated to actualizing possibility, serving love, and embodying the truth of our shared being. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband Vineet and their dog Dōgen. Click here to learn more about Caverly Morgan.
