If there is a Guinness World Record for "Most Attorneys Taught Stress Reduction in One Room," attorney Victor Davich set it when he taught 400 lawyers to meditate in the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Palm Springs Hotel.
Victor brings a unique combination to teaching meditation and stress reduction: an attorney for Fortune 500 companies, he is also an authority on meditation and author of popular meditation books. Time Magazine calls his new, unique, and innovative 8 Minute Meditation system "The most American form of meditation yet."
Victor's experience in "the real world" makes him the ideal person to teach stress management and meditation to everyone. In addition to 400 attorneys in one room, Victor has brought his "Eastern tool for Western results" to a wide variety of audiences, including healthcare professionals, depression and life change groups, and church and civic organizations.
Victor's books and CDs, The Best Guide to Meditation (St. Martin's Press) and 8 Minute Meditation: Quiet Your Mind. Change Your Life. (Penguin/Perigee) are popular throughout the world. Victor and 8 Minute Meditation are endorsed by physicians at the UCLA Medical School and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, as well as by best-selling author Richard Carlson, creator of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. 8 Minute Meditation has been featured in TIME, Cosmopolitan, OUTSIDE, SHAPE, Natural Health, and on KCBS-TV.
Victor began to meditate in law school in order to reduce his stress level and improve his concentration. He continued to meditate throughout a highly successful-and high pressure-corporate career as an attorney, marketing executive and producer at major advertising agencies and motion picture studios, including Paramount, Universal-TV, and Y&R.
Victor has studied with some of America's foremost meditation teachers, including Shinzen Young and Sharon Salzberg. He lives in Los Angeles, California.
