Michael Richardson-Borne is an American spiritual teacher as well as the creator of Applied Awakening and The Path of Non-separation.
He has supported the launch of multiple successful startup companies in the field of transformational education and was formerly employed as the CEO of Globalish Institute, a privately funded think tank in Los Angeles guided by his research in developmental psychology. In 2016, Michael left his CEO position to focus on his private practice at the newly formed Richardson-Borne Institute and to further develop his work in Applied Awakening.
In addition to his training in psychology, Michael studied philosophy on special student status at Oxford University and holds degrees in Biology and English. He is an award-winning poet as well as one of 50 global teachers selected for the inaugural Global Cooperative Forum. Young leaders of the New Arab Spring movement call him “a true voice for change,” and "the most dangerous man in America."
His primary spiritual support came from Alan Shelton, a retired CPA who spent a decade in India where he studied with Advaita teacher Ramesh Balsekar, the translator for renowned teacher Nisargadatta Maharaj.
Michael now teaches The Path of Non-separation to students around the world. For more information, visit Richardson-Borne Institute.
