About Shinzen Young

Shinzen Young became fascinated with Asian culture while a teenager in Los Angeles. Later he enrolled in a PhD program in Buddhist Studies at the University of Wisconsin. Eventually, he went to Asia and did extensive training in each of the three major Buddhist traditions: Vajrayana, Zen and Vipassana. Upon returning to the United States, his academic interests shifted to the burgeoning dialogue between Eastern meditation and Western science. Shinzen is known for his innovative “interactive, algorithmic approach” to mindfulness, a system specifically designed for use in pain management, recovery support, and as an adjunct to psychotherapy. He leads meditation retreats throughout North America and has helped establish numerous mindfulness centers and programs. He also consults widely on meditation-related research, in both the clinical and the basic science domains. He often says: “My life’s passion lies in exploring what may arise from the cross-fertilization of the best of the East with the best of the West.”

Brilliant

An explicit and compassionate guide ... I have lived with chronic pain for 20 years and Shinzen's work, with his deep understanding of the benefit of pain as a deep cleansing of impressions, bindings of the limited self, which veil us from our True Self is brilliant.

it works Shinzen's methods

Many years ago I had a pain that developed for no reason. It was a pain in my index finger almost unbearable. Using my hand to work with my "mouse" was getting almost impossible.

I tried many things but nothing. I then remembered I had Shinzen's cd program which I had not listened to. At the time I had no idea really what mindfulness meditation was either.

I listened to the cds and did it. The first few days nothing much happened with my finger, but something happened deeper. I can not name, but it was shift that, as I now see changed everything. It took about a week for pain to go away and I can say that what did happen is that the pain no longer mattered. This was back in 2003!

Anyway, Shinzen's practices are tried and true. He is a true master meditation teacher.
