On day 2 of the LeWeb2013 conference in Paris, euronews’ Mark Davis received Andy Puddicombe, a speaker at LeWeb, for a Google+ Hangout On Air.

As a former Buddhist monk, with a degree in Circus Arts, Andy provides a unique insight into the world of meditation and mindfulness, delivering an authentic message in a fresh, accessible and often humorous style. Having learnt from the very best in the world, Andy was passionate about sharing these ancient techniques and creating the conditions for a healthier and happier society.

In order to make that wish a reality, in 2010 he teamed up with creative visionary, Rich Pierson, to launch Headspace, which is now a thriving team split between Europe and the US. Commonly known as ‘The Mind Man’ or ‘Headspace Man’, Andy is a writer and presenter, with books published in over 10 languages, a featured TED Talk on Netflix, a channel on Virgin Atlantic, TV and Radio contributions for BBC Science and News and numerous features in print around the world. As the New York Times says: “Andy Puddicombe is doing for meditation, what Jamie Oliver has done for food”. Originally from London, England, Andy is now based at the Headspace HQ in Venice, California, with his wife Lucinda.
