A Mindful Society is a purpose-driven, profit-neutral social initiative established to advance mindfulness and compassion in society.
We provide the means for people to champion mindfulness in their personal and professional lives through access to education, leading-edge applications and contemplative experiences, all within the context of a like-minded community.
At our events, you’ll find scientists beside spiritual teachers of all traditions, indigenous healers beside medical doctors, schoolteachers beside parents, business leaders beside community leaders, and new practitioners beside residential monastics.
