Joyful Mind Project is a Sonoma County 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides mindfulness education and support to the San Francisco Bay Area.

The mission of Joyful Mind Project to help young people of all backgrounds define, understand, and reach their highest dreams; to cultivate vibrant mental health and academic success; to foster creativity and ecological awareness; and to encourage compassionate action in the world.

Our priority initiatives include making the mindfulness teachings available to people of all backgrounds; serving at-risk youth with trauma-informed practices; supporting women and fostering “restorative masculinity” in our communities; and supporting teachers, parents, counselors, and youth-service providers with traditional contemplative practices broadened for secular use. 


Our next retreat for educators, counselors, and parents is coming soon!  Find out about upcoming events here.
