James Austin, Ph.D.Professor of Neurology, Author


James Austin is Emeritus Professor of Neurology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. His formal Zen training began in 1974 in Kyoto with Nanrei Kobori-Roshi, an English-speaking Rinzai master. Since then, his quest as a Zen practitioner has been to clarify how brain research can help us understand the meditative transformations of consciousness. His earlier MIT Press publications include: Zen and the Brain (1998), Zen-Brain Reflections (2006), and Selfless Insight (2009). In the latest book Meditating Selflessly (2011), he presents a simplified approach to everyday meditative practices summarized in terms of many do’s and don’ts.
