Elizabeth English (D Phil) teaches meditation at Cambridge University. She holds a ground-breaking post as the University’s first Mindfulness Practitioner. Her courses are the subject of research (published in The Lancet PH, December 2017) showing significant benefit to students.
Elizabeth draws on over four decades of personal meditation practice, her ordination within a Western Buddhist tradition as well as her masters and doctoral research at Oxford University, studying Buddhist meditation texts. When she isn’t teaching or writing, she enjoys singing classical song and walking her dog.
She is also a certified teacher of Mindfulness, Focusing, Somatic Experiencing and Nonviolent Communication. She lives in Cambridge with her cocker spaniel, Cherub – whose ‘Mindful Puppy Diaries’ appear in nine short episodes on video, to entertain and delight.
