Shinzen is known for his interactive, algorithmic approach to mindfulness, and often uses mathematical metaphors to illustrate meditative phenomena. He is the author of The Science of Enlightenment: How Meditation Works, Natural Pain Relief and numerous audio offerings.
Shinzen leads residential retreats throughout North America. In 2006, he created the Home Practice Program. These phone-based mini-retreats are designed to make deep meditation practice accessible to anyone in the world regardless of their location, health situation, time or financial constraints.
As a powerful adjunct to psychotherapy, Shinzen’s innovative system has offered dramatic, positive effects on anxiety, panic disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and trauma in various clinical settings.
