Jason Siff was a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka in the late 1980s, when he first began teaching Vipassana Meditation. He subsequently left the Buddhist Order and eventually developed his own approach to meditation in 1988, called, “Recollective Awareness Meditation.” Upon leaving the Buddhist Order, he returned to the US in 1990 to study counseling psychology and train as a psychotherapist. In 1996, he was at a crossroad in his career and decided against becoming a licensed psychotherapist in favor of teaching Recollective Awareness Meditation. The influence of his psychotherapy training on his meditation teaching is nonetheless palpable, and his students find his knowledge and experience in psychotherapy very helpful with the development of their meditation practice. He founded the Skillful Meditation Project in 1996, and began teaching meditation full time. Since then, he has led and taught many meditation retreats and workshops in the US and in UK, Germany, Austria, Finland, Netherlands, Australia, and India. He has worked with hundreds of meditation students, listening closely to their reports and reading their meditation journals. A number of meditation teachers have trained under him over the past 18 years, and have adapted his teachings and methods to fit their own teaching styles. He has written “Unlearning Meditation” and “Thoughts Are Not the Enemy,” both published by Shambhala Publications and available on Kindle and other eBook formats.
