Andy Puddicombe

Andy Puddicombe is the co-founder of Headspace – a meditation and mindfulness company. He is an English author, public speaker, and a teacher of meditation and mindfulness, who is a former Buddhist monk with a degree in Circus Arts.

Andy Puddicombe - Headspace


His book The Headspace Guide to Mindfulness & Meditation: 10 minutes can make all the difference is a wonderful introduction to meditation and mindfulness.

Buddhist Monk

In 1994, Puddicombe gave up his studies in sports science and instead travelled to Asia to train as a Buddhist monk.

His meditation training took him to India, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Australia and Russia; culminating in full ordination at a Tibetan monastery in India, in the Himalayas.

Circus Arts & Meditation Teacher

In 2004 Puddicombe returned to the UK where he studied Circus Arts in London while simultaneously building his own private meditation practice in the city. He wanted to make “meditation and mindfulness accessible, relevant and beneficial to as many people as possible”.

Meditation consultant

Puddicombe set up a private meditation practice in 2006, and spent the next four years working as a mindfulness consultant, while adapting the language and techniques he had previously learned.

During this time he met his future business partner and co-founder of Headspace, Rich Pierson. Puddicombe has often attributed the success of Headspace to Pierson’s involvement.

Headspace

Headspace launched in 2010, originally as an events company in London, England. Its first online meditations were uploaded to its website before, in January 2012, the first Headspace app was launched.

The shared mission of both Andy Puddicombe and Richard Pierson was straightforward: to demystify meditation and to make it more accessible, more relevant to the modern-day world, and more creatively engaging.
