Martin Boroson

Martin Boroson has spent over thirty years exploring the cutting edge of personal and collective transformation. 

After a precocious career as a teenage political activist in New York, Marty earned a BA in philosophy at Yale and an MBA from the Yale School of Management. But feeling unsatisfied with the purely analytic approach to leadership of an MBA, he set out to learn other ways of knowing and other ways of making decisions.

He studied depth psychology, theater, and somatics, and trained in the facilitation of breakthrough experience with Dr. Stanislav Grof. Moving to Ireland, he worked for many years as a psychotherapist and founded a theatre company funded by the government to promote innovation in the training of artists. He trained in neuroscience-based coaching, is a senior faculty member in Mobius Executive Leadership, and is a Zen Buddhist priest.

Marty is best known as the author of One-Moment Meditation: Stillness for People on the Go, published in twelve languages (and also a mobile app). He designed online training programs in this radically simple technique for corporations such as Google, GlaxoSmithKline, and Next Era Energy. These demonstrated the power of micro-practices, yielding a 33% reduction in perceived stress for an exercise that takes just one minute per day. 

With his increasing conviction that time is the key to everything (and that we have no time to lose), he co-founded the One Moment Company, setting out his key thinking in the TEDx, How to Have the Time of Your Life. He has also given Keynote on time for Barron’s Top Advisory Teams Summit, Charles Schwab, and the Nueva Innovative Learning Conference.
