Robert Alvarado
Blogger & Content Strategist, The Budding Buddhist

Born in Spain, migrated to the United States in 2005, earned an MBA, worked and lived in South East Asia (Myanmar, Thailand), and now living quietly in Cebu City, Philippines as a ‘digital nomad’.

Mindfulness has been a part of my life for over a decade.

My passion for mindfulness is particularly focused on how it can transform the inner critic and reduce anxiety, as I have greatly benefited from it in those areas.

I trained in mindfulness-based stress reduction while living in Madrid. Training was under the supervision of a qualified Mindfulness teacher at Mindfulness Spain.

I am a digital marketing consultant by profession. I help online business owners achieve their internet marketing goals.

The last ten years have given me the amazing chance to work on hundreds of marketing campaigns for English markets (UK, US, Canada) in various B2B (Transport, Communication, Marketing Automation, etc.) and B2C (E-commerce, Travel, Blogging, etc.) industries.

At the Budding Buddhist, I share ideas about meditation techniques, mediation aids, zen lifestyle and Buddhism in general. I thoroughly research every topic for each post I write… just to avoid giving unauthentic information.

I think the key aspect of my website is that I try to present a fair, neutral description of the facts. I do not present any viewpoint as “right”.
