Griffin, who teaches in Malibu, CA, exists in states of Nirvikalpa Samadhi and identifies meditation as the core of his teaching.He presents ancient knowledge of the various strands of Yoga dating back to the Vedas in contemporary terms, both mystical and scientific. As such, his work complements and agrees with many esoteric practices including Taoism, Tantra, Yoga, Shamanism and theoretical physics.Mark Griffin is a Westerner who was born in the 50s in the Pacific Northwest. His childhood encompassed a usual American middle-class scenario, followed by tumultuous teen and early adult years spent in a very aggressive pursuit of higher knowledge and purpose.

Marks studies in art and music brought him to the San Francisco Bay area where he met his Guru, Swami Muktananda, in 1976.After six years of full-time immersion in the study of meditation, Mark encountered a milestone of extreme spiritual significance-entrance into an advanced state of consciousness known as Nirvakalpa Samadhi.Very shortly thereafter, Muktananda died. Great teachers of the Kagyu tradition came to Marks assistance, and he received continued instruction in maturing and stabilizing his abilities in meditation from Kalu Rinpoche and Chogyam Trungpa.Mark Griffin founded the Hard Light center of Awakening in 1989, and continues to teach in Los Angeles, California.
