Andrew began working with Mindspace in 2017 with the launch of Presence Meditation, while also overseeing the development of Mindspace’s new website. He continues to play multiple roles at Mindspace, both as a mindfulness teacher and since coming on full-time in January 2019 as our Director of Programming and Digital Strategy.

Andrew has been practicing meditation since 2002, having studied mainly in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition before becoming interested in the clinical applications of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. In addition to guiding meditation every weekday at Presence for almost two years, he completed the teacher training intensive in MBSR with the Centre for Mindfulness Studies in 2018, and is currently mentoring under Dr. Joe Flanders at Mindspace towards official qualification as a facilitator.

Andrew is passionate about furthering our collective understanding of what well-being really means, and how it can be effectively and sustainably practiced, communicated, and scaled for the benefit of all beings. He continues to draw inspiration from various Buddhist traditions and is taking full advantage of his exposure to the wealth of clinical knowledge and expertise at Mindspace to complement that. He is also enthusiastic about the potential of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and is currently playing a leadership role in Mindspace’s initiatives in this exciting new field.
