Dr. Fulton’s interest in Buddhist meditation and psychology began in his teens. At age 20 he received jukai initiation into Zen (taking refuge and receiving the precepts), and continues to practice Zen and vipassana. He earned a doctoral degree from Harvard University where he focused on comparative human development and the integration of Western and Buddhist psychology. In the mid-1990s he helped found the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy to train mental health professionals in the principles and practices of Buddhist psychology. He served as the president of IMP for 10 years, and was formerly a board member of the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies. He has a private practice of psychotherapy in Newton, Massachusetts.
