Vince 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 retreat. Vincent 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. He is the President of Buddhist Geeks, a 501(c)3 educational non-profit, and the primary teacher of Pragmatic Dharma Training, a program for people who want to accelerate awakening. Vince has been called a “power player of the mindfulness movement” by Wired magazine and was honored to be featured in Wired UK’s “Smart List: 50 people who will change the world.” He currently lives in Winston-Salem, North Carolina with his partner Emily and their son Zander.
