David Lee is a writer, teacher, and spiritual director in Portland, Oregon. He has a passion for helping others to see the spiritual dimension in the whole of their lived experience, not just in the times spent in meditation or prayer.
His teaching style is a collaborative one in which he and students explore the topics of workplace spirituality and philosophy in an open, safe, discursive manner, while respecting the lives, experiences, and truths brought to the encounter by one another and learning from their differences as well as their similarities. He is currently working on a book to help people apply contemplative spiritual practices to the time they spend at work, entitled The Cubical Cathedral: Tapping the Wellspring of Spirit at Work.
