Martin Boroson

Martin Boroson is the creator of One-Moment Meditation®—a radical approach to meditation training that helps people break through the time barrier, get started meditating now, and experience the power of just one moment of focused attention.

His short, animated film, How to Meditate in a Moment, has been seen by almost two million people and his book, One-Moment Meditation: Stillness for People on the Go, now in twelve languages, was featured as a thirty-day series on stress relief for Oprah.com.

Responding to demand for training in this technique, Marty founded the One Moment Company, which now delivers training and consulting to large organizations and the public, helping people reduce stress and boost creativity and resilience through present-moment awareness.

Marty’s background includes studying philosophy at Yale and earning an MBA from the Yale School of Management. He has practiced Zen, worked as a psychotherapist and theatre producer, and trained in the facilitation of breakthrough experience with Dr. Stanislav Grof.

His first book, Becoming Me, distilled the core teachings of many wisdom traditions into a deceptively simple children’s story. Winning rave reviews from scientists, psychologists, and leaders of many faiths, Becoming Me has been on the religious education curriculum for the UK and taught in the Philosophy for Children program.

Marty is also an adjunct faculty member of Mobius Executive Leadership, providing leadership coaching and ‘deep dive’ retreats for senior executives.
