Our Team

The Naked Monk is a labor of love conceived and run by a husband and wife team.



Stephen Schettini is a writer, author, blogger and teacher of Mindful Reflection. He studied as an ordained monk in the Tibetan and Theravadin traditions and was trained in Switzerland, India and Sri-Lanka before leaving orthodox Buddhism to find out how dharma works in everyday life. He subsequently studied typography and web design, and earns his living in the Montreal area, where he lives with his wife Caroline and their daughter Faith.



Caroline Courey is a life coach, driven by a passion to help others succeed on their individual quest. She is director of New Way Personal Life Coaching, co-founder of Mindful Reflection Workshops, director of The Naked Monk and editor of her husband Stephen’s writings. Caroline raised four children and has lived with multiple sclerosis for over two decades. She’s author of Crossed Signals, a novel for families living with long-term illness, and is a certified support group facilitator.
