Present for a Meaningful Life!

Join the Journey...

We created the Mindful Life Network™ for you. What’s happening here is exciting. It encompasses connection and learning through community, courses, and culture as we discover the benefits of integrating the skills of mindfulness into our daily lives.   

Supporting each person to learn to live a more meaningful life nurtures a mindful culture. Simply put, a mindful culture improves the world. 

The Mindful Life Network™ is the caring arms around our many offerings and the umbrella for many ways of learning, engaging and meeting others. The Mindful Life Network™  and all its offerings are created and hosted by the Mindful Life Program™. We invite you to explore the many opportunities. 

"Mindfulness is much more than present moment awareness; mindfulness includes and facilitates the cultivation of concentration, wisdom, and the ability to make healthy choices that foster genuine happiness and a meaningful life."

— Co-founder John Bruna

Our Approach to Living Mindfully

  • Accessible – All of our programs and courses use language and examples that are useful and understandable. We also are dedicated to offering free resources and making our programs as financially accessible as possible.
  • Universal – These universal teachings can benefit everyone, regardless of culture, religion, spiritual path, or economic status. Our programs and courses empower the participants to live mindfully with attention and intention in alignment with their own value system.

About the Founders

We are the founders of the Mindful Life Program™, host of the Mindful Life Network™. Our three lives came together in 2013, a former Buddhist monk from California, a social worker and therapist from Australia and a sustainability leader from Colorado. Our common link, besides instant friendship and years of mindfulness practice, was seeing the need for practical, accessible and universal approaches to learning to reduce stress and live with increased well-being and meaning. Shortly after creating the Mindful Life Program in 2014, the role of connection and community to sustain real change was clear. The Mindful Life Community™ and later the Mindfulness in Recovery® Community began supporting people on a daily basis to transform their lives through developing the skills to live with attention and intention. The three of us, John Bruna, Mark Molony and Laura Bartels, have since helped thousands of people from around the world in courses, trainings, retreats, and community with the mission to ultimately improve the world by improving themselves and their interactions with others. Mark lives in Melbourne, Australia, while Laura and John, now married, live in Carbondale, Colorado. We’ve created the Mindful Life Network™ to bring together all our community members in one supportive, engaging place, to help you and others to develop the skills and wisdom to be the person you want to be in the world. Together with people like you, we believe, we can transform the world.
