James Brown is the Bay Area’s pre-eminent teacher of the ancient practice of Vedic Meditation and the founder of FLOW Meditation. He has a unique ability to make meditation relevant and accessible to C-Suite audiences, start-up founders and other insanely busy people, and in companies and at conferences where innovation, resilience and collaboration are prized. Because after 25 years as an advertising Creative Director he’s intimately familiar with how stress and a constant Go-Go-Go! culture negatively impacts all of those things. And he’s good at blending ancient wisdom, modern science and humor to show how meditation can really, really help. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, two young sons, crazy dog and (according to his wife) way too many bicycles.
