As one of the highest earning hedge fund managers of his generation and the founder of the highly successful Robin Hood Foundation, Paul Tudor Jones is no stranger to success. His faith and passion for enhancing the conscious mind have made him a true maverick. In fact, he attributes much of his success as a businessman and a philanthropist to his spirituality.
As a person of deep faith and spirituality, Jones feels strongly about the connection between the health of the mind and the health of a person. As a philanthropist he has a passion for giving back. Paul Tudor Jones and his wife, Sonia have been able to combine these two passions by introducing the contemplative sciences more fully to the religious studies department at the University of Virginia.
