Bodhi began with a group of friends who had discovered for themselves the benefits that meditation can bring. We were introduced to meditation by some amazing teachers.
But after many years of practising meditation, we know from experience that it's not always easy to keep up the habit and to take mindfulness and awareness into our life. So we created Bodhi – bringing together leading meditation teachers, scientists and experts.
Together we're finding effective ways to support each other to live each moment with a clear mind and an open heart.
