Ben Decker, is a social activist, meditation teacher, energy worker, and entrepreneur. He’s the author of Practical Meditation for Beginners, a cross-disciplinary guide to ten different meditation techniques, the traditions that practice them, the scientific studies revealing their physiological efficacy, and instructions for their many real-life applications.
His love for meditation & the spiritual teachings of ancient traditions goes back to childhood. Ever the idealist and enthusiastic learner, this enthusiasm for meditation has won him praise by Conscious Lifestyle Magazine as "one of the world's leading meditation teachers," and Well + Good as a "superstar meditation instructor." Ben has shared his love of meditation with thousands. His work is universal, well-rounded and rooted in ancient wisdom & modern pragmatism and has also been featured in Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, Face the Current, Evolve & Ascend, Spirituality & Health, Thrive Magazine, LA Yoga, and more.
Ben is a founding Meditation Teacher at the most prominent meditation studios in Los Angeles, including Unplug Meditation, The DEN Meditation, Wanderlust Hollywood, and Mystic Journey. A lifelong meditator, the spiritual household of his youth held strong emphasis on discipline and spiritual development. Extensive personal study and life experiences have deepened his understanding of meditation, ultimately guiding him out of his prolific career in PR and into a more active role sharing meditation with those who need it.
Modern, entertaining, and easy to understand, Ben's classes take even the novice meditator into a deep exploration of their own psyche.
In Fall of 2016 he launched his first online meditation offering on the Unplug Meditation Guided Meditation App.
He worked closely with anti-human trafficking organization Unlikely Heroes in the United States and The Philippines and received the Unlikely Heroes Legacy Award in 2012. He also supports the efforts of anti-human trafficking organizations Children of the Night, Saving Innocence, International Justice Mission, The Somaly Mam Foundation, and Together 1 Heart, as well as humanitarian aid organizations Generosity.org and the American Red Cross. As a political activist, he is endorsing and publicly supporting Marianne Williamson’s 2020 Presidential Campaign. In the past he volunteered for Williamson’s 2015 Congressional run, and has also volunteered for Senator Bernie Sanders and Congressman Tim Ryan, and hosted a rally for Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
Once praised by Forbes as a "legendary PR maven," and "a shining example of the talent the philanthropic community needs to attract," Decker left a prolific career in Hollywood to dedicate his professional life to sharing the universal teachings of global ancient traditions and conscious activism.
