InStill Mindfulness SWVA offers a range of services to people and organizations in Southwest Virginia, including:

InSchools: We deliver an in-depth mindfulness training program completely free-of-charge to faculty and staff in the region’s public schools, and for a fee at other institutions. Our InSchools programming is supported by Pure Edge, the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation, and through generous donations from people like you. To help support this program, please give now.


InSight: We offer a range of classes and retreats for the public. Visit our Schedule page for upcoming events.

InSpire: We recognize two key things are missing from most mindfulness programs: community and service. Our InSpire mindfulness & service clubs give members the opportunity to share their experiences with other practitioners, and to learn more about the practice through their peers. Each club creates their own service projects, with a focus on developing community-mindedness in their area. Find a club near you.

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



InStill Mindfulness SWVA creates increased self-awareness, greater life satisfaction, and healthier communities by helping people experience a deeper understanding of themselves and the world. This is achieved through mindfulness-related education, resources, clubs, and retreats.


To instill mindfulness throughout Southwest Virginia, through education and outreach.

Core Principle

Connection—with heart, mind, self, synapses, nature, and community.


Gratitude: We value gratitude in our own lives, and offer it freely.
Self-care: We value self-care in our own lives, and aim to instill it in those around us.
Awareness: We value the development of our own awareness, and provide tools to help others develop it in themselves.
Redefine the mind: We value how mindfulness has changed our relationship with our mind, and foster it in others.
Simplicity: We value simplicity as an antidote to chaos.
Adaptability: We value adaptability, and welcome change rather than resist it.
Walk the Walk: We value authenticity, and only aim to ‘preach’ what we actually practice.
Acceptance: We value the equanimity gained through acceptance, and try to meet people where they are.
