Based in Cambridge, Michael has a masters degree with distinction in the clinical applications of mindfulness and more than thirty five years of personal practice of mindfulness and related disciplines.
He is an honorary lecturer at Bangor University, where he teaches on the part-time masters programme in mindfulness-based approaches in the School of Psychology.
A member of the core team at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice in Bangor, Michaelís teaching is both theoretical and practical. Drawing on the latest scientific research, including studies from the field of brain science, his approach fuses that with the ancient art of meditative practice.
Michael has run mindfulness programmes for a number of clients in healthcare and other organisational contexts. He has trained NHS clinicians and other psychotherapists in mindfulness skills and runs courses for the general public.
Michaelís latest book, The Mindful Workplace, was published by Wiley-Blackwell in 2011.
Under the name Kulananda he has published six other books on mindfulness and related themes.
