Celebrating Mindful Living & Leadership

As a thriving community of 75,000+ people, we offer transformative events and experiences to awaken the best in people and organisations. We host events with Search Inside Yourself (developed at Google), Stanford University’s Centre for Compassion along with workshops, film screenings and an annual Mindful Leadership Global Forum.

Over 30,000 people have attended events with inspirational speakers such as TED sensation Dr. Brené Brown, best-selling author, Dr. Margaret Wheatley and Dr. James Doty from Stanford University. Additionally, we have posted out more than 250,000 Kindness Cards for free, encouraging anonymous acts of kindness. We invite you to join the Mindful Journey.

What & Why?

What’s Mindful Living & Leadership?

It’s a transformative approach to leading and living that encourages you to step back, create mental space and be fully present. By fostering the four qualities of: self-awareness, authenticity, resilience and compassion, you grow in your ability to truly inspire, innovate and awaken the best in yourself and others.

What’s the Mindful Revolution?

In a fast-paced, tech-saturated world, increasing numbers of people are feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and disengaged. This has created a movement of people who want to live with greater meaning, kindness and resilience. Even Google, Ebay and the World Economic Forum are getting involved.

How Do I Get Involved?

Firstly, you can order a free pack of Kindness Cards and find playful ways to help make the world a little kinder. You can also join us for our upcoming events that bring together leaders from around the world, scientists and wisdom teachers to inspire more purpose, productivity and fulfilment. We hope you can join us!

How it all Started

In 2009, I had an idea to start a ‘kindness revolution’. I left my job, designed some ‘Kindness Cards’ and booked a venue for my first-ever event. This simple idea has grown into Australia’s largest and most trusted community celebrating mindful living & leadership.

We’re now a community of 75,000+ people. We’ve posted out 250,000+ Kindness Cards and more than 30,000 guests have attended our 50+ sold-out events. It’s been a wonderful journey bringing together world leading speakers, musicians & scientists to help awaken the best in people and organisations.

I believe qualities like compassion, kindness and authenticity are no longer luxuries, but necessities for a flourishing and innovative society.

May this be of benefit to the whole!

Warmly,

Jono Fisher
