Vincent Horn is part of a new generation of teachers translating age-old wisdom into contemporary code. A computer engineering dropout turned full-time contemplative, Vince spent his 20s co-founding the ground-breaking Buddhist Geeks Podcast, while simultaneously spending a full year, in total, on silent meditation retreats. Vince began teaching in 2010 and has since been authorized in both the pragmatic dharma lineage of Kenneth Folk, as well as by Trudy Goodman, guiding teacher of InsightLA, in the insight meditation tradition.

Vince is currently the President of Buddhist Geeks, a 501(c)3 educational non-profit, where he serves as one of the hosts of the Buddhist Geeks Podcast, the primary facilitator of the Pragmatic Dharma Training, an online program for people who want to accelerate their awakening, and co-leads several in-person meditation retreats each year. Vince currently lives in the mountains outside of Asheville, North Carolina with his partner of all partners Emily West Horn and their 4 year-old son Zander.
