Evidence-Based Mindfulness For Your Whole Life.

We welcome everyone, but let's face it: not everyone wants to understand mindfulness.

This is for you if you want to...

  • Up-Level your understanding of the history, benefits, and application of mindfulness in the context of your real life.
  • Expand your perspective and learn to meet people where they are across lines of race, class, & gender, understanding to the experiences your fellow humans are having.
  • Experience and learn the science-backed research and evidence-based benefits of mindfulness.
  • Understand how to integrate mindfulness in the real world within your workplace, home, relationships, and everyday life.

This is NOT for you if...

  • You aren't ready to put time into up-leveling your understanding of mindfulness.
  • You want to learn about mindfulness without a curiosity about how to create your own practice.
  • You want a homogenous experience of mindfulness that doesn’t challenge your perspectives.
