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

Ralph De La Rosa

Ralph De La Rosa is a therapist, meditation teacher, transformative life coach, writer, and musician. His work has been featured in Elephant Journal, GQ, SELF, Women's Health, MindBodyGreen, Wanderlust, Embodied Philosophy, TimeOut NY, AFAR, and New York Yoga + Life Magazine.

Ralph is a summa cum laude graduate of Fordham University's Graduate School of Social Services. He is trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), and his work incorporates psychoanalytic, somatic, and mindfulness-based approaches.

Ralph is a teaching mentor at MNDFL's meditation teacher training program, and a regular contributor to Susan Piver's Daily Dharma Gathering. In 2008, he started Rebel Heart Meditation, a weekly class that blends meditation, psychology, and neuroscience to form discussion about the transformative potential of our messy modern lives. He is a certified yoga instructor, having also trained in Breathwork and Reiki.

Ralph began practicing meditation in 1996 within the bhakti yoga tradition and became a student of Amma (Mata Amritananda Mayi) in 2000. He began studying Buddhism in 2005 and currently practices within both the Shambhala and Dharma Ocean lineages of Tibetan Buddhism.

Ralph currently lives in Brooklyn with his two cats, Emma Goldman and Henry.
