Ryan Grimes is a dedicated mindfulness practitioner with his foundations in the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program from the University of Massachusetts. As a father of two boys, he came to mindfulness in search of a tool that could increase his patience. Starting his career working in engineering and finance, Ryan was initially skeptical of meditation and mindfulness.
However, the evidence of the benefits of mindfulness in terms of both physical and mental health was Ryan’s original draw to meditation. Now a teacher in training for Search Inside Yourself, founded at Google, he continues to uncover more evidence of the benefits of meditation that could be used to persuade others to give it a try.
His practice comes from that same place of kind curiosity that he had when he first approached mindfulness. He brings a practical approach to meditation, and makes it very accessible to practitioners at all levels.
