Andrew is an author and spiritual teacher who offers talks, online courses, and workshops in the United States and abroad. As a long-time student of Buddhism, he completed the traditional three-year Buddhist meditation retreat and frequently presents this tradition from a contemporary perspective – blending the ancient wisdom of the East with modern knowledge from the West. Drawing on years of intensive study and practice, he teaches on the opportunities that exist in obstacles, helping people with hardship and pain, death and dying, and problems in meditation.
He is the author of several books, including “The Power and the Pain: Transforming Spiritual Hardship into Joy,” “Preparing to Die: Practical Advice and Spiritual Wisdom from the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition,” “Dream Yoga; Illuminating Your Life Through Lucid Dreaming and the Tibetan Yogas of Sleep,” “Meditation in the iGeneration: How to Meditate in a World of Speed and Stress,” and the audio program “Dream Yoga: The Tibetan Path of Awakening Through Lucid Dreaming.”
