Andrew has been practicing meditation since 2002, having studied mainly in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition before becoming interested in the clinical applications of mindfulness. He founded Presence Meditation in 2017 with Mindspace’s Dr. Joe Flanders where he led meditation every day for almost two years before joining the team at Mindspace full time. He completed the teacher training intensive in MBSR with the Centre for Mindfulness Studies in 2018, and completed his mentoring under Mindspace’s founder Dr. Joe Flanders.
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 the lead on Mindspace’s various projects related to this emerging field.
