Lodro Rinzler is a teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage and has taught numerous workshops at meditation centers, businesses, and college campuses throughout North America for the past 15 years.
He began meditating as a child and sat retreats as a teenager. During college, Lodro became a Vajrayana student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and established Buddhist House, an 18-person dorm at Wesleyan University that hosts a large meditation room. He began teaching meditation at that time.
After leaving college, he became executive director of the Boston Shambhala Center. Lodro served as the head of development for Shambhala before founding the Institute for Compassionate Leadership, an authentic-leadership training organization.
His columns appear regularly on the Huffington Post, Marie Claire, and Elephant Journal. He has been featured on WNYC, WBUR, FOX, and the CBC, and in Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes, and Fast Company.
He is the author of five books on meditation including The Buddha Walks into the Office, Walk Like a Buddha, The Buddha Walks into a Bar . . ., and, How to Love Yourself (And Sometimes Other People), coauthored with Meggan Watterson.
