Ray Good

Founder | The Good Place

Ray Good


The year was 1992 and Ray Good (aka DJ Sugar Ray) had just been voted one of the top 100 DJs in the world.
By night he was spinning the decks at sold-out raves. By day, he was running large-scale music events, a successful record label and his hugely popular record store.
On the outside, he was living the high-life. On the inside...he was in trouble.

Secretly struggling with high levels of stress, anxiety, and burnout... he knew there had to be a better way and when a friend suggested he attend his first meditation class, his life changed... in the best possible way.

Over the past 30 years he has had a daily meditation practice, taking him on a journey traveling the globe and learning from the world’s leaders in mindfulness, meditation and neuroscience.

Ray Good is now on a mission to create a more mindful world and help fight the global mental health crisis, by educating and empowering people to look after their most valuable and precious resource...their minds.

As the founder of The GoodPlace Ray helps individuals, teams and organisations to fight stress, think better and perform at their peak through mental fitness and mindfulness training - all grounded in neuroscience.

Or as he likes to call it:

Mindfulness - without the crystals, candles and sandals!
