Access Curated Monthly Themes and Credible Resources

Every month we address a major topic facing mindfulness practitioners with a collection of quality, evidence-based learning materials: Research summaries, contemplative frameworks, templates you can use, and inspiring videos. Previous themes include topics like "Safety", "Impact" and "Pedagogy".

"To have us together feels very special. And to have various perspectives and lenses when it comes to mindfulness; the technical science lens, the embodiment, and the contemplative side."

Reach out if you have questions. Here are a few of the most common ones:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all events and activities will be online by necessity. As things progress, we are certainly considering hosting live, in-person events. In upcoming years, hopefully we'll all feel more comfortable with large mass gatherings. At that point, we'll consider bringing back our major annual event and loop it into The Institute.

In our community, you’ll find school teachers beside parents, business leaders beside community leaders, scientists beside spiritual teachers of all traditions, indigenous healers beside medical doctors, and new practitioners beside residential monastics. We carefully curate insights and resources from diverse leading experts and organizations. We want to understand all different modalities relevant to bringing your practice out into the world. Members of our community come from all walks of life. Some purely secular, others more spiritual. We believe there are things to learn from all approaches as long as you use the best and leave the rest.

As a community-based organization, 100% of membership fees go directly back into the planning and execution of our online events, in-person workshops, producing member materials, and continuing to build the community.

We don’t want money to be a reason for anyone to be unable to access our resources. To make sure our programming is accessible to everyone, we offer a limited number of scholarships to those who would otherwise be unable to cover the costs of membership. It is open to all individuals, but preference will be given to applicants requiring financial assistance, students, and marginalized populations. Fill out this form if you’d like to be considered for the next round.

A purpose-driven social initiative established to advance mindfulness and compassion in society.

Our goal is to equip and support individuals integrating mindfulness in work and life through education, application, experience, and community. Our first 7 years were dedicated to a groundbreaking annual conference called A Mindful Society. As COVID-19 transforms our world, we've put our efforts toward accelerating our pre-existing plans to launch this Institute.
