Phillip Moffitt

In 1987, Phillip Moffitt left his position as CEO of Esquire magazine to immerse himself in the study of mindfulness meditation, Theravada Buddhism, Jungian psychology, Aikido, yoga, and various mind-body healing techniques. In 1991 Phillip founded the Life Balance Institute to help others find more meaning and a greater sense of well-being in their lives. 

In addition to being director of the Life Balance Institute, Phillip is a member of the Teachers Council at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Northern California. He leads meditation retreats at Spirit Rock and at other Buddhist centers around the United States and Canada and teaches a weekly meditation class in Marin County, California. He has written about mindfulness for Yoga Journal, Body and Soul, and Shambhala Sun. Those articles and talks from his weekly meditation class are published on his website, www.dharmawisdom.org. He is the author of Emotional Chaos to Clarity and Dancing with Life and co-author of The Power to Heal and Medicine’s Great Journey.
