WHO WE ARE
Mindfulness for the People is a Black-owned social change agency dedicated to bridging racial justice and collective wellbeing through techniques of mindfulness, compassion, and self-compassion.
WHAT WE DO
We bring compassionate mind-body wisdom to the field of racial justice on university campuses and among social good organizations. Our culturally responsive and oppression aware mindfulness trainings, keynotes, and consultations engage Racial Battle Fatigue among People of Color and White Fragility among White people.
HOW WE DO IT
Our approach disrupts systemic whiteness by making the covert overt in mindfulness research, teaching, and practice. This shift in consciousness cultivates the learning edge needed to radically re-imagine a mindfulness movement that meets the needs of our racialized world.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Dr. Angela Rose Black is a Thought Leader in mindfulness research, teaching, and practice. Named by Mindful.org as one of the “10 Powerful Women of the Mindfulness Movement” and TIME magazine as “The New Mindfulness,” Dr. Black brings racial justice to mindfulness initiatives, and mindfulness to racial justice initiatives.

ABOUT OUR ACADEMY
In Fall 2018, we established Academy for the People, a nonprofit research and education arm of Mindfulness for the People. The vision of the Academy is to become the next generation of mindfulness researchers, teachers, and practitioners that center racial justice in mindfulness and mindfulness in racial justice.
