Murray Hidary is a multidisciplinary artist and tech pioneer. His purpose-driven approach is at the heart of his business success, acclaim as a visual artist, and global recognition as a musician.
Growing up playing music since he was five years old, Murray knew he wanted to be a composer by the time he was in high school. He also began a deep inner journey of discovery as a teenager that led him to study Eastern philosophy, Zen Buddhism, and other wisdom traditions. As his composing became deeply influenced by these teachings, he began to fuse the two into a personal reflective practice at the piano. It became a voice he used to connect to his higher sense of purpose. A musical language and journey continued to emerge and evolve, which he eventually called MindTravel.
Murray created the first MindTravel experience, an intimate piano concert in his living room, in 2013. Today, in addition to performing globally — recently playing the first-ever live-piano concert on the continent of Antarctica — he continues to expand the conversations about purpose and the human condition through online teaching and in his MindTravel Mastery membership. Through music, the universal language of emotion, MindTravel seeks to remind us of that which is always present but often unfelt: connection to ourselves, connection to nature, and connection to our common humanity.
Murray is also a Certified Meditation Teacher through the Vedic Center, and a Certified Grief Counselor through Our House Grief Support Center.
