If you are interested in learning the art of building a meditation practice, welcome!
Our "Where To Start" page has details about beginning your journey.
Below is a description of what Mindful Boston is as a school of meditation, and who are the staff, students, trainees and volunteers that keep our institute up and running.
Mindful Boston's mission is to create access to embodied, in-person, meditation practice.
We offer practical learning pathways for building and integrating mindfulness skills.
As a meditative arts institute, Mindful Boston is both a practice studio and an adult-ed trade school.
What is Mindful Boston?
Mindful Boston is a small education organization currently pursuing nonprofit status.
At it's core, Mindful Boston is a trade school that trains meditation teachers in a way that is similar to the way a culinary arts trade school would train chefs.
Your first encounter with Mindful Boston teachers will probably be at one of our public classes, such as Community Meditation Night. The CMN is our version of a "training kitchen" where our meditation teacher trainees cook up live meditations in person, in the greater Boston area.
We do also include some online options as a supplement. Yet, just as with recorded cooking videos, there are more nutrients in a lived experience of meditation.
