About Will Meecham, MD, MA
In late 2014, Will Meecham, MD, MA, launched MindfulBiology.org to combine clear explanations of biology with guided meditations, in order to help us better appreciate our amazing human bodies.
Before he felt ready to start MindfulBiology.org, which he considers his life’s work, Will needed to overcome a highly traumatic upbringing. Although he had successfully completed years of higher education (in ecology, biophysics, neuroscience, and medicine), when neck disease ended his career as an oculoplastic surgeon, he suffered psychiatric collapse. In the aftermath he was forced to confront vulnerabilities common in those who suffered hardship early in life. After years of inner work, he grew to understand how people can transcend childhood trauma, adult disappointment, and the painful feelings they cause.
This blog’s title–Peace, Love, and Childhood Adversity–reflects Will’s realization that a history of the latter, after recovery, promotes the former. With time and effort, the wounded person uncovers a peaceful and loving heart, and feels healed.
