"Mindfulness, the aware, balanced acceptance of present experience, is at the heart of what the Buddha taught.”
—Sylvia Boorstein

Albert Flynn DeSilver

Albert Flynn DeSilver is an internationally published poet, memoirist, novelist, and speaker. His work has appeared in more than 100 literary journals worldwide. Albert is the author of several books of poems and the memoir "Beamish Boy," which Kirkus Reviews called "A beautifully written memoir...poignant and inspirational." His latest book is "Writing as a Path to Awakening," (Sounds True, 2017).

He has been meditating ever since his first Monday night sitting in 1994 when Jack Kornfield dedicated the entire evening to poetry. For many years Albert taught in the Teen and Family program at Spirit Rock and went on to practice with Ajahn Jumnian, Adayashanti, and others.

Albert teaches writing and meditation workshops at Spirit Rock, The Esalen Institute, Omega Institute, Shambhala Mountain, and at writing conferences nationally.
