Give me 4 weeks, I'll give you changes for life!

In times like these, we really can't afford to lose our mind. Spend a month training your mind and step into greater calm.

Mindful in May is the world’s largest online mindfulness fundraising campaign. The idea behind it is simple: we provide education, tools and support so you can build a sustainable meditation practice to become mentally fit in one month. Research shows it only takes 10 minutes of meditation a day to see significant positive benefits to your life.

And as you strengthen your mind, you can also opt to better the world by raising funds to bring clean, safe drinking water to those who most need it.
