our people

We believe that our potential for positive impact is rooted in our ability to reflect and practice internally what we are promoting to our school and community partners externally.

To do this, we are continually exploring what it means to ‘work mindfully’ and build a ‘mindfulness organization.’ We are engaged in evolving our team structure and organizational systems to better reflect our commitment to diverse experiences, forms of knowledge, and understandings of mindfulness practice.
