Lawrence Levy :: The Juniper Story

How do you, as a modern human being, approach a practice that's 2,500 years old? Is it relevant to you, does it help you with your day to day stress, does it foster your personal growth? And most important, does it give you a methodology that enables you to put that growth into practice, and plant more seeds as you go?

Born in London, England, Lawrence moved to the United States as a teenager. He studied business at Indiana University and law at Harvard Law School. A successful career in law and the high technology industry culminated at Pixar Animation Studios, where he was chief financial officer and a board member.

For the past ten years, Lawrence has been studying, training in, researching, and writing about Buddhist methods and philosophy. Lawrence leads Juniperís development work, is the principal writer of Juniperís written content, and lectures on Buddhist training for modern life. Lawrence lives in Palo Alto, California with his wife, Hillary, also one of Juniper's founders.
