Instilling mindfulness in Southwest Virginia: InStill Mindfulness SWVA is committed to instilling mindfulness throughout Southwest Virginia, through education and outreach. We currently do this by delivering in-depth mindfulness training, completely free-of-charge, to faculty in the region's public schools; by providing customized mindfulness-based solutions to the region's businesses; and by presenting mindfulness-based retreats and classes to the general public.

InSchools: After several years developing a program primarily for students, we delivered nearly 300 classes in Montgomery middle schools in the spring semester of 2017. This intensive programming helped us realize the importance of teaching faculty directly, as it is a far more effective and efficient means to reach a large number of students on an ongoing basis. To this end, we now deliver our own curriculum - completely free-of-charge - to faculty in the region's public schools, and for a fee at other institutions. Our InSchools programming is supported by Pure Edge and the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation.

InStore: We design and deliver mindfulness-based solutions for private businesses and other organizations, specifically catering to each organization's expressed needs.

InSide: We are intent of delivering our programming - inspired and informed by the Prison Mindfulness Institute's Path of Freedom curriculum - to as many people in the criminal justice system as possible. We were fortunate to present this programming to teens on probation, through the Department of Juvenile Justice, and look forward to future endeavors in this area.

Vision: To instill mindfulness throughout southwest Virginia, through education and outreach.
Mission: InStill Mindfulness SWVA works in collaboration with community partners to provide real-world, interrelational mindfulness classes throughout southwest Virginia. Fiercely secular, InStill considers mindfulness to simply be noticing with curiosity. By doing this in the present moment, without judgment, one is able to cultivate focus, concentration, kindness, compassion, wisdom, and heartfulness towards oneself and others.
