Loch, along with Brain/Mind expert Dr. Andrew Newberg, has been part of New York City's Rubin Museum of Art "Brainwave Series" and Loch is actively engaged in academic brain/ mind/consciouness research and study. 


Natural Wakefulness Center is the organization and network supporting the nondual-direct path teaching of Loch Kelly.

Loch resides in New York, but also travels widely, providing intensives and retreats. At New York City's One Spirit Learning Alliance Loch offers the regular semester long "Course of Awakening" (see details below).

Loch teaches at the invitation of Adya- shanti, Mingyur Rinpoche and the Vpassana tradition.   As a graduate of Columbia University and Union Theological Seminary, Loch was awarded a fellowship to study Buddhist meditation in Sri Lanka from 1981-1982 in both the monasteries and at the University in Kandy. 

He then studied the non-dual traditions of Dzogchen with Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche in Nepal and Advaita in India.  Returning to the U.S., Loch spent 10 years establishing homeless shelters and community lunch programs and, as a psychotherapist, worked in outpatient mental health in Brooklyn, New York.  He has also served as the Coordinator of Counseling as well as Interfaith Chaplain for Union Theological Seminary. 

In 2007 Loch began working actively with Adyashanti and Adya urged Loch to begin teaching actively.
