ABOUT US

Online Mindfulness Community


We are building a positive global online community
to support each other on the path of
meditation, mindfulness and self-improvement.
We aim to give you practical tools to improve your life.

Personal welcome

Thank you for reading about our work. I'm Christiaan, founder of Meditation Mind.

We've been working tirelessly with countless of incredible volunteers across the world to create a cohesive, positive and supportive community online. Back when it started in 2016 up till now, we have had thousands of users join us on various platforms and benefit from the resources and activities we offer.

It is my sincere wish that everything we do will contribute to a better world and a healthier mind for all beings.
I'd love to welcome you to this incredible journey!

Our Mission

The purpose of Meditation Mind is to help people cultivate a meditation mind while also creating a collective of people from across the globe who share a passion for meditation, mindfulness, and healthy living.

From Eastern and Western contemplative traditions to philosophy, psychology, both mainstream and alternative medicine, and even art, all fields provide valuable insights and approaches to mindfulness. We aim to share those insights in an accessible and pragmatic way.

Bridging the gap

We aim to bridge the gap between religions, traditions, both secular and non-secular, cultures, and nations by sharing all teachings beneficial to cultivating a meditation mind in a radically accessible way. This means being open to all religions, all traditions, and all teachings, within reason.

We are a non-profit and non-religious organisation and we place emphasis on scientific findings and practical solutions applicable to meditation, mindfulness, and a holistic lifestyle.

Serving

Our aim is to create a collective of people from across the globe who come together to share their experience and expertise – not hidden behind a paywall or some secretive initiation, but accessible to all.

Whether it is music, art, poetry, prose, guided meditations, or any other medium, we aim to share that which is of benefit to the pursuit of meditation mind. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for partnering initiatives that share a similar vision.

JshBet8

Age: Late 20s
Location: USA
Current practice: Vipassana
Meditation experience: It was stress and pain that finally caused me to look inward. After certain events unfolded, the conditions were unacceptable to my mind and produced a lot of tension constantly in my day to day. Somehow, my brain connected my latent interest in Buddhism (I live next to some small temples) and my notions of meditation as a way to try understand what was going on. So I bought a book and read it - loved it - and this propelled me forward into the practice. I've primarily practiced samatha/vipassana based meditation for the entirety of the practice although I have dabbled in more anchorless meditation styles. Meditation comes with a diverse tree of traditions and styles that isn't owned by any one idea. This gives us the freedom to truly explore. I've sat at physical sanghas and online with this community. Grateful for both!
Reason for volunteering: This community helped encourage me develop my practice and good habits so giving back felt like the right thing to do.
Favorite thing about our community: Practice oriented channels like #meditation, #questions, #practice-report, and #intensives. Plus #gaming for off-topic stuff!

Nathan

Age: 37
Location: Japan
Current practice: Surrender
Meditation experience: General curiosity and fascination with the mind naturally brought me to meditation. I have a basic knowledge of and have dabbled in many methods and systems, albeit with a heavy bias toward (traditional and secular) Buddhist practices. I have been practicing consistently since late 2018 and have attended one 10-day silent retreat in the Goenka tradition. Rob Burbea's teachings have been and continue to be greatly influential in my journey.
Favorite thing about our community: The Meditation Mind community is open and welcoming, and it exists for the community, first and foremost.

"Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing." ~Ajahn Chah, A Still Forest Pool

Favorite Quote:

Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy. -Pema Chodron

Current practice: Mindfulness and concentration practice
Meditation experience: I discovered mindfulness through "A New Earth" from Eckhardt Tolle and it gave me some insights how I can change the way I think about any problems that may occur.
Favorite thing about our community: the openess and the inspiration I get every day
Favorite quote: "Resist nothing"

Zee

Name: Zee
Age: 28
Location: New York
Current practice: Nonsectarian Buddhism.
Meditation experience: I discovered meditation when a therapist recommended it to me for anxiety and depression. My practice has since grown well beyond my initial stress-reduction goals.
Reason for volunteering: I appreciate what this community has done to keep me inspired to practice, and I hope to foster that inspiration in others who are just discovering meditation and mindfulness.
Favorite thing about our community: The community members. They're all invested in supporting and helping each other, and it creates a healthy environment in which people can grow and learn.
