A Year of Mindfulness

Starts Feb. 13, 2017

Awaken presence & compassion in every area of your life

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

This new online mindfulness meditation community from Sounds True will introduce you—over the course of a year—to a diverse group of influential mindfulness teachers, including Jon Kabat-Zinn, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Diane Musho Hamilton, Richard Miller, and many more. Hosting this yearlong program is Kelly Boys, who has nearly two decades of experience teaching and practicing mindfulness, and currently consults with the UN Foundation on mindfulness for humanitarian workers.

You’ll also explore a new topic every month—neuroscience, lovingkindness, peak performance, communication, health—so that by the end of the year you’ll have mindfulness skills for every area of your life.

To help you stay on track, each month begins with a live online session. Each includes new teachings, guided practices, Q&As with master teachers, and small-group breakout sessions.

Together, students and teachers will also create a worldwide community of practitioners through a private Facebook group, giving us encouragement and support in between our live sessions.

Finally, each teacher will also give you extra practice materials—guided meditations, book excerpts, and more.
