He is inspired and regularly amazed by what is possible in and through practice. 

My Story

Zac Newman is a regular teacher and faculty member for HaMakom, a UK-based organisation which shares Jewish meditation and wisdom teachings through in-person and virtual retreats, as well as online courses and events. Zac manages all of HaMakom’s operations. He also teaches for Or HaLev, the Israel-based centre for Jewish spirituality and meditation. He is an adjunct faculty member on Or HaLev’s year-long programme Yesod: Foundations for Deepening Jewish Mindfulness Meditation, in partnership with the Institute for Jewish Spirituality in the USA. 


Zac has been teaching meditation since 2013, and practising since 2008. He teaches mindfulness in schools, workplaces, one-to-one and in a variety of public groups. He is a long-time teacher of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme. He trained to teach through the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University. 


Zac studied Theology at the University of Cambridge, and was subsequently a Henry Fellow at Yale University. Before he moved in 2019 to teaching mindfulness and meditation full-time, he spent 7 years working as a teacher of mathematics, religious studies and philosophy at a high school in London, UK, serving a diverse and socioeconomically disadvantaged local community. Since 2020 he has been studying existential psychotherapy at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling in London, UK. He has spent extensive time on retreat, and is committed to continually refreshing and deepening his practice and understanding in this way.
