Author, translator, and business consultant, Ken McLeod is also one of the more innovative teachers of Buddhism today. Known for his ability to explain difficult and subtle teachings, “he distills the nature and purpose of Buddhism to make it accessible for any newcomer without dumbing it down.” (Phil Catalfo, Yoga Journal, July 2001 in a review of Ken’s first book, Wake up to Your Life).

Ken’s private practice model of one-on-one consultations roiled the Buddhist world in the ‘90s only to become an accepted way of working with students. He has pioneered new retreat formats, approaches to translation, the integration of daily individual interviews and practical application exercises with traditional meditation and teaching, and different ways of developing teachers.

Ken began his studies in 1970 under the tutelage of the late Kalu Rinpoche. After completing two three-year retreats, he was appointed to teach in Los Angeles. In 1990, he established Unfettered Mind as a place for people whose paths lie outside established centers and institutions. With degrees in mathematics and years of experience in classical Tibetan Buddhism, Ken is uniquely able to bridge the gap between contemporary life and traditional approaches to spiritual practice.
