Creating mindful communities, one school at a time.
Mindfulness Director Initiative
Mindfulness Director Initiative (MDI) exists to make mindfulness teachers and practices accessible to all schools. We are starting a movement to integrate full-time mindfulness directors into school communities with the dream of creating a more just, healthy, and aware society.
Join us by supporting MDI, becoming a partner school, or serving as a Mindfulness Director. Help to make the transformative power of mindfulness a reality for school communities by facilitating the integration of mindfulness into schools through the Mindfulness Director Model.
Our unique school partnership program creates mindful school communities from the inside out.
Partnering with schools

What’s Possible in Schools
When mindfulness skills permeate school culture, profound changes can result for students, staff, and parents.
We are excited to announce that MDI is partnering with the Ten Percent Happier App!
Each community member of our seven partner schools will have access to the Ten Percent Happier App for free. The Ten Percent Happier app includes meditation courses and teachings from some of the world’s top mindfulness experts. Thank you, Ten Percent Happier, for your support!
