A note from our founder and editor-in-chief

Lachlan Brown, founder and editor-in-chief of Hack Spirit

I originally created Hack Spirit because I was so passionate about how useful mindfulness and eastern philosophy can be in people’s lives, yet most of the information out there failed to provide it in a practical and simple way. It frustrated me that such valuable knowledge was often delivered in confusing ways.

So I set out to to change this. I believe that mindfulness doesn’t need to esoteric. It can be very practical and accessible.

I’m humbled by the incredible support we’ve received along the way from you, our readers. We’re now one of the largest media sites on mindfulness in the world with over 2 million monthly readers.

Thank you for being a part of this journey. To keep in touch, follow me on Facebook.

Our writers

Justin Brown has been writing for Hack Spirit since its earliest days. He’s a reformed academic who has benefited from the guidance of Lachlan to simplify his writing so that it’s clear and accessible. He’s also running Ideapod, a technology company producing media on the ideas shaping our lives. His favorite philosopher is Noam Chomsky, and he’s also partial to the wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh when it comes to his ideas on engaged Buddhism.


Gosia Kurowska was born in Poland and has lived and worked in Belgium as a communications and press officer for the EU Institutions. She currently lives in Bangkok where she writes for Hack Spirit. She’s passionate about mindfulness and wellness, and is looking forward to learning more about eastern philosophy in her new home of Thailand.
