My name is Kelly Schwartz, but I go by Karuna. I’m the Founder and Executive Director of Mind Oasis. Back in 2017, I was on a month-long meditation retreat in the desert of Arizona. Sometime around week three of sitting in an old airstream camper in blazing heat with only my mind as company, I was inspired to create an online meditation community for the rest of us. You know, people like you and me who have regular lives and are doing the best we can to be a little bit kinder with a little more ease.
Since then, thanks to many supporting community members, volunteers, donors, and dedicated teachers, the Mind Oasis Meditation Center has blossomed into a meaningful and welcoming co-created space!
Accessed through our online Meditation Center, sessions are 30-minutes and are as interactive as you would like — dial in, Zoom in, video on or off, chat with the group, or remain in silence. Your presence is always enough.
We always say that our community is our "special sauce" at Mind Oasis. Our members are welcoming, kind-hearted, and fun. We've seen friendships develop between people who otherwise would have never met. Become a "regular" on Community Meditation™ and see for yourself!
Mind Oasis also offers Meditation Immersions, retreats (online and in real life), challenges to keep your practice alive, blogs, podcasts, and inspiration for your practice.
