We took AMS 2020: Our Present Future virtual in response to the worldwide pandemic. We had an incredible turnout of attendees, and we learned that we can provide authentic community experiences via online breakout sessions and keynotes.
A Mindful Society 2021: Revolve was a unique version of our annual summit where we hosted a 1-day virtual festival of uplifting, engaging, and thoughtful mindfulness experiences for international practitioners, leaders, and change-makers. We revolved across 11 different time zones, attendees practiced, learned, and enjoyed a sense of belonging and directly interacted with the leaders in the mindfulness field.
A learning community providing practitioners and professionals interested in applying mindfulness direct access to leaders in mindfulness, a like-minded community, and updates on the latest research and resources available.
Our goal is to equip and support individuals integrating mindfulness in work and life through education, application, experience, and community. Our first 8 years were dedicated to a groundbreaking annual conference called A Mindful Society. The Mindful Society Global Institute is the next chapter of our growth. The Institute has been established to further support the life-long learning of our expanding global community.
