We are committed to sharing mindfulness with people of all cultural and religious backgrounds, ethnicities, socio-economic classes, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages and levels of education. It is our intention to support people in applying the essence of mindfulness to every aspect of daily life. We are committed to honouring the ethical framework to which mindfulness belongs, supporting the cultivation of the inner and outer conditions which allow individuals to thrive and which lead to a more mindful and just society.
