Kelvin Chin is an international stress management and meditation expert.

Over 40 years experience teaching meditation

Kelvin learned to meditate at age 19, and has been teaching meditation in living rooms, schools, and businesses worldwide — and now via videoconference, phone, Skype, and webinars — for over 40 years.

a “teacher of teachers”

Kelvin is a “teacher of teachers” — teachers of other meditation techniques from around the world seek his guidance on meditation. Why? Because many of their teachers have died, and few teachers in the world have as much experience both 1) with teaching others how to meditate, and 2) with their own personal experiences of “turning within,” with truly Knowing Oneself.

pioneer in the first medical studies on meditation

Kelvin was a test subject in the first medical studies on meditation in the U.S.— conducted by Boston cardiologist Herbert Benson, MD (published in Scientific American). Kelvin also taught the first meditation classes at West Point Military Academy, and in the U.S. Army on the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone) in Korea, and at Raytheon, AIA International, 1-800-DENTIST, Dartmouth and Yale University.

has taught 1,000’s worldwide

Kelvin has taught people from age 4 to 94 — professional athletes, retirees, teachers, students from elementary school to postdocs, construction workers, clergy, and CEOs. He has taught 1,000’s of people this easy-to-learn technique of naturally Turning Within — or “learning how to let go.” He often simply calls it “learning how to turn on the opposite switch to the Fight or Flight response.”

Kelvin has taught Buddhist monks to use his technique. They continue to use their Buddhist meditation. But, they say they get more out of their meditations after practicing Kelvin’s technique. So, there is no conflict with the two techniques. He has also taught clergy from all religions — priests, nuns, rabbis, ministers — as well as Sikhs, Muslims, Hindus, and atheists. 

Kelvin lives in Los Angeles, California, but travels and teaches both private sessions and group classes worldwide — in Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas — via Videoconference, Phone, and In-person.

ivy league graduate

Kelvin is a graduate of Dartmouth College, Yale University, and Boston College Law School.

Kelvin Chin narrating a quick tour of his dorm, Wheeler Hall, where he met fellow Dartmouth student George C. Hammond (class of ’75), after introducing George to meditation at a lecture in 1971 at 28 Silsby Hall. “George became the next president of the SIMS-Dartmouth meditation club when I graduated and the first meditation teacher on campus. I graduated early after giving on-campus lectures to hundreds of students, faculty and community families, then went to complete my meditation teacher training in La Antilla, Spain.”

Kel, as he is known to those who adore him, is one of the most incredible people you will have the opportunity to meet. He is also an amazing meditation teacher! His meditation classes were like nothing I have ever experienced and I’ve been meditating for years. He is so patient, non-judgmental and a constant resource for help. I highly recommend working with him to anyone!
