Jeff Warren is a writer and meditation instructor. His primary subject is practice—meditation practice, movement practice, life practice—made relevant and exciting and (sometimes) ridiculous. He is the coauthor, with Dan Harris, of the New York Times best seller Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics, a road-trip-slash-how-to-mediate manual, and author of The Head Trip, a travel guide to sleeping, dreaming, and waking that critics called “enchanting,” “hilarious,” and “long.”
Warren is a former producer for CBC Radio’s The Current and Ideas and has written for the New York Times, the New Scientist, Discover, and other publications. He has won several awards for his writing, including on the subject of whale brains. In 2011, Warren founded The Consciousness Explorers Club (CEC), a nonprofit meditation adventure group based in Toronto. The CEC’s motto is “being human takes practice.” Their ambition—and Jeff’s—is to empower and support new forms of community practice.
