Hearts and Minds


Hearts and Minds is an organization that promotes emotional well being through mindfulness education. Mindfulness is not what you think. What we think, in fact, often gets in our way. And we’re always thinking. That’s they way our minds work. Mindfulness, which can seem deceptively simple, is about noticing what’s in front of us. It’s a quality of attention that befriends our experiences whether they are positive, negative, or neutral. The practice of mindfulness, which invites us to be less reactive and more responsive again and again, is harder.


Learning to develop a mindfulness practice is worth the effort. Research consistently shows that mindfulness can reduce stress and increase a sense of well being. At Hearts and Minds, we bring mindfulness into homes, schools, and organizations. We offer experiential classes to help adults and children cultivate their innate capacities for mindful awareness, acceptance, and kindness.


Mindfulness education is a gift that you can give to yourself or to others. Visit our website to sign up for a course or contact us about bringing an educational event to your school, workplace, or other organization.

Mindfulness can profoundly change your relationship to your life, to yourself, and to others.

Our courses are affordable, enjoyable, and skills-based. You can begin to live what you learn immediately.

Mindfulness is not what you think. Come experience it for yourself.
