Stress and hardship are facts of life. Many react to these daily struggles with anger, drugs, depression, or even crime. The Meditation Initiative has taught more than 75,000 people an alternative: meditation. We can find peace amidst the chaos of our lives. We can find this peace right here, right now, in the very eye of the storm.

The Meditation Initiative has made tremendous progress towards our vision of offering meditation as a means of bringing harmony to our world. Our approach of using meditation as a mindfulness education has been well received by the many organizations around the country.

We provide free community outreach to K-12 Public Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, Prisons, Diabetes Patients, HIV Patients, Corporations, Senior Centers, Homeless Teens, Superior Court of CA, Sober Living Homes, United States Military, Wounded Warriors, At-Risk Youth, and Group Homes for Victims of Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking.
