About Mingyur Rinpoche
Born in Nepal, Mingyur Rinpoche began to study meditation as a young boy and spent many years of his childhood in strict retreat and traditional training. Rinpoche has also had a lifelong interest in Western science and psychology, which has led to many fruitful collaborations with neuroscientists and psychologists. In his approach to teaching meditation, he integrates traditional Buddhist practice and philosophy with the current scientific understanding of the mind and mental health – making the practice of mediation relevant and accessible to students around the world. Rinpoche is the author of the best-selling book The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, as well as several other titles.
