The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society
Mirabai Bush is Senior Fellow and the founding Director of The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, a non-profit organization that encourages contemplative awareness in American life in order to create a more just, compassionate, and reflective society.
She has designed and led contemplative trainings for corporations from Monsanto to Google, led a national survey of contemplative practice, and directed a Contemplative Practice Fellowship awards program with the American Council of Learned Societies to explore such practices in academic courses in more than 100 colleges and universities. She is co-author, with Ram Dass, of Compassion in Action: Setting Out on the Path of Service, and editor of Contemplation Nation: How Ancient Practices Are Changing the Way We Live. She co-founded and directed Illuminations, Inc., in Cambridge, MA.
Her innovative business approaches, based on mindfulness practice, were reported in Newsweek, Inc., Fortune, and the Boston Business Journal. Mirabai’s new CD on practices for a contemplative workplace, “Working with Mindfulness,” is available at morethansound.net.
