Nigel Wellings is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and author who works within a broadly contemplative perspective. For over forty years he has explored the relationship between psychotherapy and Buddhism, Dzogchen in particular, having first met Chögyal Namkhai Norbuin in the mid 1970s while studying Thangka painting in India.
A teacher on the Bath and Bristol Mindfulness Courses and the Sharpham Barn Retreats, Nigel’s previous books include Nothing To Lose: Psychotherapy, Buddhism and Living Life, and Present with Suffering: Being with the Things That Hurt (both with Elizabeth Wilde McCormick), and Why Can’t I Meditate? How To Get Your Mindfulness Practice On Track.
He divides his time between Bath, and Devon, where he and his wife go for long walks with their dog, Lyddie.
