August 21-day Mindfulness Mission

21-day Mindfulness Mission

Do you want to bring more mindfulness and balance into your life, but not sure how to start? Or have you already experienced the benefits of meditation, and want to strengthen your practice?

You are invited to join a private group to take on a three week-long mindfulness training with MindKind Institute founder, Home Nguyen.

This program is designed for new and intermediate practitioners who have been introduced to the basics of mindfulness, and want to build a consistent meditation practice.

Over the course of 21 days, you’ll learn about a variety of meditation techniques and how you can weave them into your everyday life – no matter how busy you are.

Who It’s For

This is an introductory meditation class, however people with all levels of experience with meditation are welcome.

  • You’ll receive helpful guidance, instruction, peer support, and accountability to practice meditation over 3 weeks with minimal time commitment.

  • The program takes place entirely online or over phone – we’ll have weekly group calls (60 min) and the rest of the content will be delivered by video, our online learning platform, and some brief readings.

  • Each week you’ll have specific exercises to practice meditation on a daily basis, on your own time and at your convenience.

  • You'll also share and discuss your experience with Home and other students in the group on the online platform.

The program is designed for busy people and time commitment will be minimal: we estimate about 15 minutes per day for meditation and reflection, and an extra hour per week for readings and group discussion.


You’ll walk away with a range of useful mindfulness techniques and a strong start to build a daily practice – one that will help you to become more centered, present, and grounded in your day-to-day life.


The program will start on Sunday, August 7th, 2016. The main instructional component will run for three weeks, with the last week of the month being optional for additional practice.


At MindKind Institute, we strongly believe in the power and value of mindfulness practices and it is our mission to make it more accessible to people who seek to learn them. As in the Vipassana tradition from which we've received these teachings, we wish to make the practice of meditation freely available to all, regardless of their ability to pay. 

That is why we offer this program on a Pay-It-Forward basis. This means that all participants are asked to set an intention to make the most out of the experience, and then pass on the value they receive however they can. After the program is complete, you are welcome to pay whatever amount you feel is appropriate for the value you received, with the intention of making this program sustainable and available to others in the future. 

In exchange, we ask that everyone who signs up to participate does so with a strong sense of commitment and willingness to complete the full mission. You will be expected to participate actively, follow through on all assignments, and contribute your unique perspective to the dialogue being fostered in the community.
