Ajayan Borys has instructed and guided thousands of meditation students in North America, Australia, Europe, and India, gaining wide renown as a consummate teacher.
In the early 1970s, he studied in residence under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation© Program, and taught the TM© technique for ten years. From 1994 to 1998, Ajayan studied with India's most widely revered living woman saint, Mata Amritanandamayi (Amma, "the hugging saint"), serving as the meditation teacher at her main ashram in Kerala, India. While in India, he also spent time with holy men and yogis in the Himalayas of Uttaranchal — a haven for saints throughout the ages — and researched spiritual practices indigenous to that area.
As the host of Mind Matters Radio on KKNW in Seattle, he interviews experts in the fields of psychology, science, relationships, and human potential. Ajayan is also a certified Enneagram teacher, registered hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, and Vastu consultant. He is the author (as Henry James Borys) of two previous books, The Way of Marriage and The Sacred Fire: Love as a Spiritual Path, as well as numerous articles on meditation and relationships as a spiritual path.
He teaches Effortless Mind meditation classes and workshops in the Seattle area and leads a yearly retreat at the source of the Ganges River in the Himalayas.
