Matthew Frum has been meditating for almost 20 years, and had the great fortune to live as a Tibetan Buddhist monk, ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Matthew spent over 2 years in solitary meditation retreat in a remote wilderness hermitage near Big Sur, California. This experience fuels Matthew’s life and practice today. In 2008 Matthew left the monastic life, inspired to live as an “everyday monk” and to creatively share what he had learned. Matthew taught Buddhism and meditation at the Thubten Shedrup Ling Buddhist Center in Colorado Springs. He is a co-founder of CalmCare.org, where he teaches mindfulness and self-compassion to caregivers, and is currently the faculty meditation instructor for The Optimist Magazine’s year-long Transformational Studies Program.
