Education alone is not enough

Making long-lasting change requires motivation & commitment…and the learning process needs to be fun & easy.

Our 26-lesson Mindful Professional Course only requires one-hour per week. Students watch videos, listen to audios, read articles and interact with like-minded mindful professionals on the Mindful “U” Platform. Students that complete the course earn a “Certified Mindful Professional” certificate, which has helped many graduates achieve their professional goals.

Mindful “U” students & alumni receive additional support and can ask questions of the group, mentor and be mentored, get one-on-one support via email with our “Ask The Monk” solution and are invited to our weekly “Core-Topics” live group discussions.

Not ready to commit to the Mindful Professional Course but you want to connect with other mindful professionals, have access to mindful tools & resources and be part of a lively group discussion, then we invite you to become a Mindful “U” Member.
