James Brown


James Brown is the founder of Flow Meditation and one of the world’s leading experts in the ancient practice of Vedic Meditation, from which the Flow program was developed. But it wasn’t always so.

James learned to meditate when life was, in a word, chaos: a new baby, a failing marriage, a bad job in the high-stress world of advertising and an uncertain future. But he discovered the Flow approach to mediation..and it worked. He and his wife (now doing much, much better) learned together and found the practice to be doable, even in the context of a hectic life, and the benefits were enormous.

So against all odds he decided to leave his successful career in advertising and embark on a two-year training program in the US and India so that he could share this practice with others. Over the last decade James has taught thousands of busy people from all walks of life to meditate, and has led courses and workshops at some of the world coolest conferences and at companies across the country, including some of Silicon Valley’s most innovative firms. He lives in The Presidio with his wife, two rambunctious boys, crazy dog (cattle dog/coonhound mix!) and, according to his wife, WAY too many bicycles.
