Meet Todd Robinson

       “My time as a Buddhist Monk was wonderful at helping me with PTSD and finding peace in abandoning worldly pursuits.
       The nature of PTSD, not trusting anyone or anything, pushed me to then question everything I thought I’d known.
       Subconscious awareness (macro-psychology) lets me fully engage in daily life again. 
So everything is the same, yet totally different.”

       ~Todd Robinson

Todd is a former Buddhist monk and the founder of Applied Awareness with 40 years of meditation experience and over a quarter of a century studying how meditation works on a mental level.

His studies have helped us reach a new macro-psychological understanding of the subconscious mind.

Applied Awareness is the natural progression of traditional mindfulness and insight meditations that take advantage of advances in meditation over the last 2500 years.

Applied Awareness meditations are based on the original Mindfulness practices, and a modern approach to Insight Meditation for raising our subconscious into our normal conscious awareness.


Todd started practicing transcendental and other meditations in the 1980s.

After the first Gulf-War he moved to Thailand and became a Buddhist Monk to deal with severe PTSD, and later returned to serve as the first Buddhist Monk to work within any of the U.S. Armed Service Chaplain Corps.

After returning to civilian life he helped create an insight meditation center in Denver, Colorado before leaving the monkhood to focus on learning how the mind influences meditation, and how meditation influences the mind.

Todd resumed teaching in 2011, and is currently one of, if not the most, knowledgeable meditation experts of our time.
