About the Author

"JAY MICHAELSON, PhD, is a scholar, activist, practicing Buddhist, and teacher of Jewish mysticism (Kabbalah). He has written extensively on meditation, religion, sexuality, and law.

His work has also been featured on CNN, NPR, and in the New York Times. A longtime LGBT activist who teaches regularly for national LGBT organizations like GLAAD, he is also the founder of Nehirim, a national LGBT Jewish community."


"Jay Michaelson gets it. His voice is contemporary yet serious, informed yet engaging-and much needed today."
-Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

"Taking the reader from the banks of the Ganges to the offices of Google, Evolving Dharma shows how meditation is transforming our world. A must-read!"
-Deepak Chopra, author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and Spiritual Solutions

"Michaelson tackles difficult questions about Buddhism's evolution in Western culture, as mindfulness practice grows slowly but steadily as a popular secular activity. He examines the history of postmodern Buddhism, describes the path of practice and enlightenment through his own personal accounts of bliss and darkness, and considers future directions. Working from the foundational idea that meditation has become a set of tools for the refinement and improvement of the human mind, the author addresses the pitfalls and benefits of the more traditional spiritual/religious approach and its counterpart, the rational and scientific Western worldview...Serious practitioners-secular or religious-and curious individuals alike would benefit greatly from reading Michaelson's intelligent and compassionate examination of mindfulness practice."
-Publishers Weekly

"I highly recommend this book. Its scholarship on the past is solid, its review of the present is revealing, and its sense of possibility grounded in both kindness and vision."
-Daniel Ingram, author of Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha

"All of us need to Occupy the Dharma, to take meditation and mindfulness back from the spiritual 1% and enliven our lives. This book demonstrates and instructs us how to do exactly that. Evolving Dharma is essential reading if you're an aspiring brainhacker, a BuJu, a seeker, or anyone who wants to see the light, lighten up and brighten up on the path from head to heart that is the delightful journey of awakening."
-Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within

"Evolving Dharma tells a story that is changing the world: the mainstreaming of meditation and the democratization of wisdom. This is not only the best book on contemporary mindfulness; it is the first of its kind."
-Josh Baran, former Zen monk and author of The Tao of Now

"What a fantastic book! Smart, tender, incisive, and visionary. If you only read one dharma book this year, read Evolving Dharma."
-Kenneth Folk, teacher, Kenneth Folk Dharma and Buddhist Geeks
