Andy Kelley prides himself on being a "regular guy" who is able to reach an audience that might not otherwise be inclined to meditate. On that premise, he founded The Boston Buddha with the mission to help average, everyday people feel better about themselves, by Meditating, or as he likes to say, “getting out of their own way”, so they can be more effective in their careers and happier in their lives. Andy is a certified meditation instructor for the Chopra Center. He’s also a graduate of Jon Kabat-Zinn's The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program at the Center for Mindfulness at University of Massachusetts Medical School. He teaches young and old, from professors to carpenters, moms and dads... in fact the programs have morphed to include an Elementary Courses for kids ages K - 5, another for teenagers and Workshops for Corporations as well.
