Scott SnibbeScott Snibbe is the founder and host of the meditation podcast ‘A Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment’. Snibbe is a twenty-year student of Tibetan Buddhism whose teachers include Geshe Ngawang Dakpa, Choden Rinpoche, Ven. Rene Feusi, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Inspired by his teachers, he leads meditations that infuse the pure lineage of the great Buddhist masters with science, humor, and the realities of the modern world. Over the course of a career as a digital artist and entrepreneur, Snibbe has created bestselling art, music, and social apps, and collaborated with musicians and filmmakers including Björk, James Cameron, and Philip Glass. His interactive exhibits have been collected by both science and art museums, including the Whitney Museum of American Art and New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

How to Train a Happy MindInspired by the ancient Buddhist path to enlightenment yet firmly grounded in modern science, this sequence shows how ordinary people—even non-Buddhists—can achieve happiness using the lamrim’s ancient, authentic practices of analytical meditation. Scott Snibbe’s first book, “How to Train a Happy Mind: A Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment” was published in March 2024. Order here.

Scott has also created the Train a Happy Mind Community, practicing the analytical meditation techniques shared in the How to Train a Happy Mind book and Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment podcast to create a happy mind, fulfilling relationships, and a better world.
