About

The Mindful Life Community is a supportive mindfulness social and learning community. Membership comes with many benefits including daily mindfulness support, teachings, live member events and online member resources. Through the weekly themes of attention, values, wisdom, action, compassion and more, we combine the practice of meditation and the practical application of mindfulness in daily life. Imagine cultivating wellness, inner peace, and resiliency in a supportive community with tools and resources that allow you to develop genuine happiness. 

As we live more mindfully, our families, communities, and the world at large also benefits. Envision millions of people all over the world engaging in daily mindfulness practices that include compassion and loving-kindness! Together we can be a healthy and mindful movement of kindness and inclusion. It is the vision of the Mindful Life Community to grow all over the world and be that movement. Together, we not only make a difference, we are the difference.

Our Mission

As with all of our programs, the community was developed in alignment with our mission of being practical, accessible and universal.

Practical – The community is designed in a way that allows you to engage at a level that can fit into your lifestyle. You can choose to participate at any level that you find beneficial.

Accessible – The teachings and resources are provided in language and with examples that are clear and understandable. It is also accessible in terms of financial resources. We have done our very best to keep all of the administrative costs as low as possible so that you can participate in this valuable program for as low as $10 per month.

Universal – The community is designed to help support you live a life in alignment with your values. This community does not advocate any particular philosophy or religion. It is designed to help with the challenges and problems we share as humans and provide you with the support to cultivate your own particular path. It is our firm conviction that everyone, regardless of race, religion, gender, or orientation, deserves to live a meaningful and happy life. It is our belief that this can be accomplished when people have the resources and tools to live the life they find meaningful – with attention and intention, a life that is in alignment with their own values and allows them to flourish.

Join the Mindful Life Community and engage in living a meaningful life, with attention and intention.

Members are able to message each other, share their inspirations, experiences, epiphanies, struggles, and successes. The app also provides members with direct access the meditation library, event calendar and member homepage.

WHAT MEMBERS ARE SAYING

“This is the community that has helped me start on the path of mindfulness. I have all of these amazing things I want to say about how much I have benefitted in a short time… Learning to relax again, to connect with others, to align with my values, which makes life so much more meaningful, to begin to choose genuine happiness…. But it’s better if you check it out yourself.” – Adriana

“Please consider joining the Mindful Life Community. John Bruna and his compassionate wisdom has changed my life. I see the world through new, loving, and compassionate eyes. I have a grateful heart. As John frequently states, I want to live my life with attention and intention. The Mindful Life Program paves that road.” – Dan

“The Mindful Life Community has been the method and practice that has grown meaning in my life garden.” – Aaron

“On the way home from the retreat, I had some concerns about how I was going to remember everything I had learned, and apply it in my daily life.  Now that I have become a member of the MLC, those concerns have disappeared. This website offers everything I need to stay on the path I want to be on.  The opportunities here are life-changing for me (in a good way!) Simple effective tools that I can use right here right now to make my life better & the world better.” – Mary

“I await my morning teachings with exuberance! Your gift of daily awakening is such a blessing to me. I, like other students, arrived home with all intentions of following the day by day opening of mindful living, given so freely in my handout. Truth be said, I followed my handout for three days and “reality” ( haha) got me. Joining the Community has so rocked me. My heart, soul & being have found such forward movement. I have also embraced the truth of knowing this is a life PRACTICE. Some days are better then others, imagine that! Thanking you from the deepest part of my heart for all you love, courage, encouragement & all the WORK  you put into sharing the joy of awakening.” – Maria

“Since joining The Mindful Life Community each day begins and ends with reflection which brings a deeper sense of gratitude and purpose in my life. John and Laura are providing a support system that I can connect with each day that helps me focus my intentions and clarifies my values. I am more aware of love in my heart, not just for those people in my life, but for the experience to be alive and have so many loving people around me. And the difficult situations are less painful as I realize they help me to grow and develop a deeper well of empathy, compassion, and space to help myself and others.” Elissa

I want to express my gratitude and appreciation of the opportunity to participate in the Mindful Life Program. I have only been enrolled for a matter of days, yet already I can feel the transformative power of this program. There is so much wisdom to be gained through the daily readings, activities, and practices that I find so clearly and cohesively presented.The website is lovely and offers so much to explore in addition to the daily inspiration, activities, and exercises. Your intention to be of benefit to others shines through every aspect of the program. Many thanks, Martha
