Biography

Andy Kelley is the founder and director of The Boston Buddha - Meditation for Everyone. For nearly a decade, Andy has helped ordinary people (like himself) learn to slow down and recharge through meditation. He prides himself on being a "regular guy" that reaches an audience that might not otherwise be inclined to meditate. Andy is currently a certified meditation instructor for the Chopra Center and he studied under Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. David Simon, co-founders of the Chopra Center. He is also a graduate of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) at the Center for Mindfulness. Andy has worked with companies such as Hill Holliday, Reuters, Hollister Inc., and the American Association Of University Women among others. He currently teaches his Morning Mindfulness program in the public elementary schools in Milton, Brookline, and teaches workshops for the Middle and High school border students at Milton Academy, and Newton. Andy conducts numerous “school teacher” training workshops and frequently collaborates with schools and organizations to bring meditation and mindfulness courses to children in schools all over the country. Most days, Andy spends most mornings teaching students (and teachers) how to meditate and afternoons working with private clients and corporations. In the evening you can find him teaching a yoga/meditation class or coaching his son’s basketball team. Andy's mantra is, "Meditation for Everyone". He teaches everyday people how to meditate so they can be more productive in their careers and happier in their lives.
