Peter Fernando trained as a Buddhist monk  for seven years, and lived within retreat environments for most of his twenties. Upon leaving the monk’s life life he was invited to teach in Wellington by New Zealand mindfulness trainer and meditation teacher, Stephen Archer, and was one of the founders of Original Nature Meditation Centre in 2009.

He is devoted to living a life of compassion and mindful awareness, and bringing these qualities into the world.

He is the author of ‘Finding Freedom in Illness – A guide to cultivating deep well-being through mindfulness and self-compassion’, published by Shambhala in 2016. You can read more about it here.
