Get MNDFL Trained Like This:


  • Get Expertise: MIT is a live training led by expert MNDFL Facilitators who offer feedback and mentorship focused on your development. They won’t hold your hand, but they’ll be there to support you at your growing edges.

  • Get Intimate: Join a small cohort of less than 24 people - no one gets lost on page 5 of the Zoom screen.

  • Get Collaborative: Within your cohort, you’ll connect weekly with a MNDFL Pod of 5-6 peers to build accountability, ask questions, and stay motivated. With this level of connection, nobody gets left behind.

  • Get Interactive: Weekly sessions are held live on Zoom to connect with MNDFL Facilitators, get your questions answered, and dig deeper into the training content with your MNDFL Pod in breakout rooms. There’s no joining this training anonymously just to “listen in” - this is where your unique mindfulness voice comes alive. 

  • Get Practiced: Theory is all well and good, but what happens when you sit in front of people to share? How about people that are different - that stretch your learning edge? Scripts will get you but so (not very) far. Practicums are project-based learning, because learning-by-doing is the premier way to learn.  

  • Get Ready: NEW! We've now made MIT Even More Accessible. It's no secret that mindfulness is for everyone, so we've ditched the applications to join our live Mindfulness Intensive Training. While we call it MIT, you don't need a 6-page resume or tons of experience to join. Just bring the curiosity and commitment to make your life a more mindful one, and we'll meet you there.

Cultivating Compassion and Awareness is No Joke

We welcome everyone, but let's face it: not everyone is ready for serious practice.

This is for you if you want to...

  • Improve your life with a way for the benefits of mindfulness to meet you where you are.
  • Deepen your engagement with life and work as an educator, counselor, trainer, healer, or just as a plain human.
  • Engage mindfully with people across lines of race, class, & gender, and find the connections you and your fellow humans are having.
  • Discover exactly where you meet mindfulness and it meets you. 

This is NOT for you if...

  • You aren't ready to "get real" to deepen your own practice.
  • You think "watching videos" will let you avoid a commitment to the integrity of your own practice.
  • You expect or want a homogenous experience of mindfulness.
  • You are using mindfulness to bypass mental health challenges best worked out with the direct support of a professional or healer.
