Waylon Lewis

Waylon Lewis is the founder of Elephant Journal and author of Things I Would Like to Do with You and It’s Never too Late to Fall in Love with Your LifeBorn and raised in a Buddhist community in Boulder, Colorado, he attended school on the east coast, worked at Shambhala Pubs and Boston's Trident Cafe & Booksellers,, learned business 101 at Shambhala/Drala Mountain Center, wrote and meditated at Naropa University, and then started Elephant Magazine. Now known as Elephant Journal, the online publication reaches millions of readers a month and has 13+ million fans across social media. Its central message is encouraging people to get off social media, and be kind to themselves, others, animals, and our planet. Additionally, he founded Elephant Academy, which teaches meditation and writing to thousands; and hosts the award-winning Walk the Talk Show video series and podcast. A first-generation American Buddhist “Dharma Brat,” grumpy environmentalist, hopeful activist, mediocre climber, lazy yogi, and 365-day bicycle commuter, Waylon dearly misses Redford, his half-hound, all-trouble best pal.
