Community Partnerships

The Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness values community, inclusion, compassion, and generosity. In this spirit, we partner with other local organizations that provide important services to those who might not otherwise have an opportunity to learn about mindfulness. Many of our teachers volunteer with our community partners offering classes, workshops, and trainings both onsite and off. We endeavor to bring the healing attitudes and practices of mindfulness where they are needed.
