Modern Life Mindfulness Fest
There is currently no dedicated mindfulness festival in Miami, or even the US. This is a novel concept. The intention is to offer activities and speakers that connect people to mindful states. By experiencing mindfulness firsthand, and meeting others that are also interested in the lifestyle, Miamians will be inspired to lead healthier and more meaning-filled lives.
Mindfulness is an unequivocally positive lifestyle and set of practices that can be incorporated into most aspects of life. Miami is a destination for health and wellness, and we want it to be a a leader in the burgeoning area of Mindfulness as well.
Modern Life will be filled with highly curated programming; consisting of meditation, music, art, food, technology, speakers, and creative opportunities for people to interact with each other. Our 3 objectives are:
1. To give you diverse experiences and routes to access Mindfulness
2. To inspire you through charismatic speakers offering actionable insights
3. To act as a catalyst to build community
Modern OM, the 1st lifestyle brand for mindness, and The Sacred Space Miami, a center for personal growth and transformation, have partnered to bring this festival to life. We have the vision, the venue, and the date. We are now seeking resources to make Modern Life a reality.
The funds we are crowdsourcing are intended to help off-set the cost of bringing speakers to Miami. The festival date is set--but our ability to bring incredible experts to lead sessions depends on the support of the Miami community.
If you want to be a part of the the Mindfulness movement and help co-author a festival in Miami that will inspire, uplift, and connect you to likeminded people, please consider donating at one of our levels below.
We're incredibly enthusiastic about building this initative in Miami. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
There is now overwhelming empirical research that shows the positive benefits of both meditation and mindfulness:
- A recent NYT article discusses how meditation changes the brain.
- Meditation and running can be used as treatment for depression.
- Athletes use mindfulness to improve performance.
- CEOs and executives use mindfulness to make better decisions.
