Like many who have come before him, Pat has faced his own mental health challenges along a non-linear career path. In an attempt to break the historical chain of mental illness in his family, Moran sought an alternative method of healing after moving to New York City in 2015. He first learned to meditate from Emily Fletcher of Ziva Incorporated. Meditation has changed the way in which he views the world and his role on the world stage.
However, Pat is a firm believer that meditation is simply an ingredient when it comes to his healing. Fortunate enough to have had a continual creative outlet, an incredible therapist, and medication when necessary, Moran continually strives to restore balance in his life while lending his experience, knowledge, and passion to help others do the same. He's certified by the esteemed Veda Center to teach meditation.
Pat Moran is an actor, teacher, and the founder of Tula Meditation. Drawn to music at a young age, Pat's mom would invite him to sing while she played the piano. Their rendition of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" was his first segue into sharing his voice with the world.
In the theatre, Pat has worked in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Delaware, Colorado, Kansas, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, and his home state of Pennsylvania. A true repertory actor, Moran's experience ranges from Shakespeare to Musical Theatre. A few highlights from his career include portraying the Emcee in Kander and Ebb's Cabaret, playing multiple roles in the regional premiere of Robert Shenkkan's All the Way, and performing with Creede Rep's Boomtown improv troupe.
