Meet Our Teachers

Suzanne M. Hill, M.Sc., L.Ac

Suzanne is OHM’s Owner and Founder and she teaches on Zoom M-F, 11:30-12:15pm, generally 52 weeks a year.  This class is for serious students of Meditation & Spirituality who would like to go deeper in their practice.  Please join this group if you are curious or are longing for a group that will up-level your frequency!

Suzanne became an acupuncturist because it gave her the opportunity to fuse her healing and medical interest with her spiritual studies. An acupuncturist since 1999, Suzanne began to teach meditation and spirituality classes shortly thereafter, because she realized that needles alone would not help people out of their suffering.

In addition to acupuncture and meditation, Suzanne has studied a multitude of religious lineages as well as many forms of energy healing.  She has studied energy healing with Rosalyn Bruyere, and was a student of Gehlek Rinpoche of the Gelug lineage as well as Chongtul Rinpoche of the Bön lineage. She is currently a student of Swami Vishwananda of Bhakti Marga, Frankfurt, Germany and Swami Tulsidas of Bhakti Marga, Elmira, USA. Suzanne is also  trained in Reconnection, Regenetics, Pranic Healing and Level 2 Quantum Healing Hypnosis (QHHT).

Ethan Scibelli

Ethan currently teaches the in-house Mantra Chanting classes and co-teaches a number of in-house Sound Healing classes at OHM.   He also teaches Tibetan Mantra Chanting on Zoom every Sunday and Monday night, 9-9:30pm.  He has been meditating since he was a child, and for over a decade has studied various religions including Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity.

Ethan has studied under Gehlek Rinpoche of the Gelugpa lineage, as well as under the Sakya Trizin of the Sakya lineage, having completed a month-long study of Vajrayana up in Walden, NY.  Ethan has also been under the tutelage of Lama Rangbar of the Nyingma lineage and his center, Bodhivastu.  He has also taken the Kalachakra initiation with the Dalai Lama in Bodhgaya, India.

Ethan is a certified Pranic Healer and a certified Advanced Level 1 Singing Bowl practitioner through the IASH (The International Academy of Sound Healing).  He has traveled throughout India and Nepal, and one of his favorite places is the birthplace of Buddha in Lumbini.

Gregory M. Hill

Gregory teaches a medley of Tibetan Mantras for the OHM Center via Zoom every Thursday evening from 9-9:30pm.

He studied for nearly 7 years principally with Lama Ribur Rinpoche, his primary teacher for a core 5-1/2 years.  After Ribur’s passing, Gregory continued on with Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche and Lama Gehlek Rinpoche.  His teachers are all of the Gelug lineage school of Tibetan Buddhism.   

During his 7 years of discipleship, Gregory experienced, studied, attended, and directly participated in numerous events, pujas, consecrations, and other ceremonies.  Over a 20+ year period, he has mastered the Lam Rim prayers, lessons, visualizations and the medley accompanying multiple deity mantras in both Tibetan and English with the underlying comparative Sanskrit meanings and definitions. 

For his daytime activities, Gregory helps founders and entrepreneurs build their businesses by clearing what’s in the way as they grow, scale and expand their companies.

What OHM On-line Students Have To Say

What OHM On-Line Participants Have to Say

Suzanne has taught me what meditation really means. Try her classes and then you will understand. Through her classes, I have learnt so many different ideologies and not be pigeonholed into one school of thought. Chanting is one of the ways to open your heart and it's been incredible to have been taught many of them. Her years of knowledge she's passing to us in an approachable way. I don't live in NYC so we have been incredibly grateful to have had access to these classes and continute to do so via Zoom. For the people who live in NYC - go to the OHM Center to enjoy the sound baths, acupuncture and all that this center offers.

I have had the great fortune of being both a daily student, as well as, a patron of OHM's healing treatments. Suzanne is a polymath; there is no subject she hasn't studied, shown by her capacity to teach a wide range of practical to esoteric learning that students receive in digestible and engaging lessons.

P.S. SUCH a good meditation this morning. I had an interesting experience listening to the neighbor's jazz music behind me to travel deeply into some chakra healing. So wonderful and healing. Thank you as always!

I was looking for a nightly reitual to end my normal chaotic pressure filled days as well as get me ready for the upcoming work week. Suzanne suggested I join her mantra chanting Sunday through Thursday at 9pm. After weeks of doing it, I fell in love with it, and it gave me a real reason to be home and in bed by 8:59pm. The best part is my now 5-year old son does it with me and it's a great bonding experience.

"I've been loving all you've been talking about this week [in meditation class] And your energy is amazing. I'm dealing with wacky hormone changes, my frozen shoulder, oh, and a Mack truck rear-ending me. Practice with you really helps me see all the Divine is offering me to learn -- my attachment to the idea of being rewarded for good behaior, my preoccupation with the material world when my body doesn't behave the way i want it to, etc. Feeling so much gratitude for your teaching and energy."

That [meditation class] just made my whole body actually tremble with pure white light while crying. I am so grateful for you and the class. Thank you for sharing your insight, wisdom and energy with me and so many others. You are a blessing, a beacon of light.

Update: Different tears today. Lately, waves of joy and love have been bubbling up through my being in moments of absolute lucid clarity. This class is changing me and my life forever.

"For 50+ years I never really "got" meditation. Trying to clear my mind just made me think of all the things I was trying not to think about. At a point when I was going through a particularly anxious time, I thought why not try meditation again, see if it can help me through this. It ended up doing so much more for me that 2-1/2 years later, I'm still in class every morning. Suzanne's attitude and approach is both intellectual and spiritual and the class inspires me to keep building a practice that has made my life so much more enjoyable and easy to live. I never realized my analytical bent was preventing me from knowing the world in a deeper, more intuitive, and positive way. It was a block that prevented most spiritual approaches from getting through. The class, with its mix of wisdom training and meditation practices, stimulated my mind in just the right way that my normal skepticism dissolved as my sensitivity to more subtle feelings grew and I've become more and more able to enter a meditative state.
