Meet the Author

Shinzen Young is an American-born meditation teacher and professor who has specialized in the scientific study of meditative states. His innovative techniques for pain management derived from two sources: his personal experience dealing with discomfort during intense periods of meditation in Asia and during shamanic ceremonies with tribal cultures, as well as his three decades of experience in coaching people through a wide spectrum of chronic and acute pain challenges. Shinzen leads retreats in the mindfulness tradition throughout North America and has helped establish several centers and programs. He is the author of the audio program The Science of Enlightenment (Sounds True, 2005) and more.
