Silas Day is an up and coming voice in the emerging discussion between the 2,500 year old tradition of Buddhism and modern day life.
He has been passionately obsessed with discovering the true nature of our consciousness and how to explore it since the time he was thirteen. He left college after two years in divinity studies to have more time to put toward meditation, the study of philosophical idea systems, and methods of liberation.
Silas studied and practiced within the the general Mahayana and, more specifically, the Zen/Chan traditions of Buddhism for five years before expanding his studies to include all schools of Buddhism, Vedanta, and Western Mysticism. His main teacher is Daniel Ingram who is regarded as one of the West’s preeminent meditation teachers and retreat guides. Silas takes a non-sectarian approach to the exploration of consciousness wanting to hopefully establish a unified field theory of meditation among the vast amount of schools just as chemists came together to create the periodic table.
He has written seven books trying to get across Buddhist and Eastern ideas to the everyday people of the world. He has also produced many guided meditations and two full length courses to better help anyone curious enough to explore their own nature, emotions, and consciousness.
