About The Author
Andy Puddicombe started learning to meditate at the age of 11, and explored various approaches throughout his teens. In his early twenties he decided to act on his hunch that there had to be more to life, and set off to Asia to become a Buddhist monk. He became a fully ordained monk at a Tibetan Monastery in the Indian Himalayas, and spent many years living in monasteries and retreats throughout the world.
Andy returned to the UK in 2004 with one simple intention: to demystify meditation, to make it accessible, relevant and beneficial to as many people as possible. And thus the seeds of Headspace were sown.
Andy is now a registered Clinical Meditation Consultant with the UK Healthcare Commission.
