Ken Britzius is a meditation teacher who came from an unlikely beginning. During the '90s and '00s he worked in the corporate world, managing operations and serving as Chief Financial Officer for a large corporation in the Twin Cities. After years in the corporate grind he was stressed out, depressed, and deeply disillusioned with the standard approach to the American dream. This led to him making some major life changes, and most significantly, it led him to the path of Mindfulness-Based Meditation.
Abandoning the corporate world, Britzius began teaching Mindfulness-Based-Meditation in New Richmond and surrounding communities.
Over many years Britzius has led hundreds of Mindfulness-Based Meditation classes. More importantly, he has had the chance to witness the profound, positive changes that mindfulness based meditation can bring. Ken has had the great privilege of seeing expressions of pain, stress, unhappiness, and hopelessness, replaced by the beautiful smiles of peace, joy, and freedom on hundreds of new meditator's faces.
Today, Ken Britzius is a published author, Executive Director and Guiding Teacher at Still Knowing Meditation Center in New Richmond, Wisconsin, which opened to the public in early 2017. Still Knowing Meditation Center is a place of peaceful refuge for all who come with a desire to learn the life-changing practice of Mindfulness-Based Meditation.
His book, The Path to Peace: A Guide to the Practice of Meditation and Mindfulness is available now on Amazon.com, at live events, at the New Richmond Public Library and at the website www.stillknowing.org.
