We have witnessed, over the past several years, an unprecedented surge of interest in the practices of mindfulness. As we have gradually awakened to the costs of constant activity, pressure and aggression, the values of meditation and other mindfulness practices have become important to millions of people.
At Mindful we do our best to inform, educate, and inspire people who want to know more. But many of the most profound gifts of mindfulness can’t be fully realized through the written word or even recorded video courses. To realize the true potential of mindfulness most of us need to interact with insightful human beings. Through interaction we can fully recognize our shared paths. Through relationships with teachers and friends, we can realize our potential.
The Mindful Directory is designed to cultivate those relationships. This new global directory is meant to provide teachers, coaches, events leaders, and students of mindfulness with the connections they need to cultivate their own mindfulness practice and to chart their own path toward higher levels of compassion, health, and peace of mind.
This new global directory of teachers, coaches and events is meant to provide a global audience with the connections they need to cultivate their own mindfulness practice and to chart their own path toward higher levels of compassion, health, and peace of mind.
The Mindful Directory offers a guide to the credentials you should look for when you are seeking guidance from a teacher to enhance your practice. The Quality Commitment section of this site offers the descriptions and philosophies of a number of fields of practice, with more to come. The goal is for this to be the place where beginners, lifetime practitioners, and everyone in between, can find teachers and events that offer specific, personal value.
This new platform aims to connect mindfulness teachers and students, creating communities of care that can spread across the globe. If you’re a mindfulness teacher (or you know a great one) you can sign-up and create a teacher profile so people can find you and you can help support their practice.
The design and execution of the Mindful Directory has been spearheaded by Mindful and EventsList but its evolution owes a debt of gratitude to the support and friendship of a host of our respective friends in the field. Please visit our Partner Organizations page to meet some of our most influential colleagues and follow links to their sites.
We feel profound gratitude toward all those people who have brought the practices of mindfulness forward in our society over the past years. And especially I want to express my warmest thanks to Sharon Hadley and EventsList for joining us in this exciting enterprise, and making it all possible.
