Shinzen Young at Google

Shinzen Young is one of the best meditation teachers I have ever met.  He is very intelligent and extremely knowledgeable about science, and he speaks in a way that someone who values scientific, logical and rational thinking would find extremely attractive.  (Also, he speaks fluent Mandarin, so I like to say he speaks my language in more ways than one).  His audiobook, the Science of Enlightenment, is the best description of enlightenment (with a small 'e') I have ever come across.  I very highly recommend it.  There are also many video clips of him on YouTube, I highly recommend them too.  I was so impressed with him the very first time I met him in person, I asked him to be my teacher.

I had the honor of hosting Shinzen at Google twice, once for a public talk and once for a meditation session.  I highly recommend them.  Here are the YouTube videos.

  1. Thanks very much for posting this. I was as student of Shinzen back when he first started teaching (in 1980, in Los Angeles). Even though I have not seen him in over 20 years, these You Tube videos are exceptional. By the way, great site!! Tom
