He has led more than 450 seminars, trainings and retreats nationwide, in Canada, Australia, at Omega Institute, and the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health on many topics, including mindfulness, neuroscience, brain change, emotional intelligence, stress reduction, meditation and the treatment of a wide variety of disorders.

Terry studied extensively with His Holiness the Dalai Lama for twenty-five years and with some of the American pioneers of mindfulness, including Jon Kabat-Zinn and John Welwood. His first book, Cultivating Lasting Happiness: A 7-Step Guide to Mindfulness, was cited as one of “the 12 essential books on mindfulness.” His second book, The Five Core Skills of Mindfulness: A Direct Path to More Confidence, Joy and Love, presents his clear and unique approach to mindfulness practice as a powerful force for healthy change in our everyday lives.
