LORIN ROCHE, PhD began meditating in a physiology lab at the University of California in 1968 and immediately fell in love with the practice. He began teaching meditation in 1970 and earned his doctorate from University of California, Irvine for his work on the subjective experience of meditation. He trains meditation teachers worldwide and specializes in helping people customize individual meditation practices to align with their unique nature. Rather than imposing a standardized, one-size-fits-all model, he has drawn on insights from the best of Western science and Eastern yoga to create his own approach called Instinctive Meditation™. Dr. Roche is the author of six books including Meditation Made Easy, The Radiance Sutras: 112 Gateways to the Yoga of Wonder and Delight, and, with his wife Camille Maurine, Meditation Secrets for Women: Discovering Your Passion, Pleasure, and Inner Peace. Lorin is on the faculty of Esalen Institute, 1440 Multiversity, Loyola Marymount University, and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. He and Camille travel widely to give workshops, retreats, and presentations with The Radiance Sutras. Together the couple lead a dynamic teacher training in their natural, life-affirming approach to meditation.
