Phillip Moffitt is a Buddhist meditation teacher and writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has served as Co-Guiding Teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center since 2010 and leads meditation retreats throughout the United States and Canada. His teacher, the Venerable Ajahn Sumedho, inspired his book on the Four Noble Truths, Dancing with Life: Buddhist Insights for Finding Meaning and Joy in the Face of Suffering (Rodale, 2008). His newest book, Awakening through the Nine Bodies presents his understanding of the nature of mind based on teachings he received over a period of twenty years from Himalayan yoga master Sri Swami Balyogi Premvarni.

In addition to teaching meditation, Phillip is the president of Life Balance Institute, which he founded in 1995. In his work at the institute, he trains individuals and groups in the principles of values-based leadership and living with an emphasis on how to skillfully make major transitions. His book, Emotional Chaos to Clarity (Penguin, 2012), presents many of the principles that he uses in Life Balance work.

Prior to establishing himself as a meditation teacher and founding Life Balance Institute, Phillip was editor-in-chief and CEO of Esquire and led the successful turnaround of the magazine in the 1980s.
