It is our larger mission to create a wholesome, healthy, and welcoming community of unique individuals. We don’t just tolerate different ways of living and cultural wisdom but encourage our peers to trust in their own wisdom and follow their own unique path to well-being.


Your gifts will go directly to our main funding areas and concrete actions:

  1. Meditation Courses: Provide subsidized tickets to meditation courses.
  2. Community event organization: Organize local and online events. 
  3. Engagement research: Research and address obstacles to engagement in mindfulness programming.

"I feel reconnected with the real me, my true nature. I remember who I was before my family, teachers, friends, culture and society told me and taught me to be someone different.

For this I’m forever grateful ❤️🙏"

“I had trouble making time for meditation and when I did, had a hard time getting into a mindful state.

I now actively look forward to my meditation time”

Having trained in a formal yogic/Eastern tradition, I didn't have the luxury of asking random questions of my teachers... it was more an education of "acceptance."  You have made the experience more common-sense and human.  Thank you. 

What is the SkillfulMeans Community?

We developed the SkillfulMeans Community after seeing the growing need for an open mindfulness community where people from different traditions with different teachers can come together and share insights, questions and support each other on their path to greater wellbeing.

This platform is divided into a few different sections:


Free Resources

There are three kinds of free resources we offer!
In the "Meet Our Teachers" space you will find all sorts of podcasts, videos, free meditation recordings etc. to help you get starting with practicing and applying meditation
I would highly recommend joining and checking out our "Free Challenges". These are week-long opportunities to dive into or refresh a meditation practice. 


Our conversations section is open to everyone. Feel free to join the classes in the "Events" space and after the class continue the conversation or review the main points from the class.



Our events space includes both free and paid upcoming SkillfulMeans events that are both in-person and online. They will be clearly labeled and we would love for you to join any of them!

Program Groups (Mini Sanghas)

When you join a program such as, "The Mindful Body Program" or the "Growing Up Mindful Certification" you will be invited to a min sangha with its own conversation and resources.
