Minimalist Wellness - Learn to Meditate


Michael W. Taft began his career as a meditation mentor over 30 years ago with the intention of furthering Buddhist and Hindu principles he learned first hand during extensive Eastern travels.

From Zen temples in Japan to yogi caves in India, Michael has been meditating for over thirty years and has extensive experience in both Buddhist and Hindu practice. He began his journey as a teenager suffering from crippling anxiety attacks, and the realization that his greatest obstacle was his own mind. Teaching himself to meditate at 16, Michael experienced immediate and significant pain relief, which launched him on a life-long path of meditation and self-inquiry. He experienced a life-changing awakening in Japan in the summer of 1987.

When Michael isn't working one-on-one with his meditation students, he works as the editor-in-chief of Being Human, a site for exploring what evolution, neuroscience, biology, psychology, archeology, and technology can tell us about the human condition. Among Michael's many accolades, he was featured on a minimalist topic, what I would call uncluttering mental real estate, in Scientific America!
