I am super stoked you have arrived in this warm and welcoming space! Mind Oasis is an authentic and friendly online gathering place for people both curious about and committed to practicing meditation in community.
Full disclosure: we have a lot of F-U-N at Mind Oasis.
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. Using my background in nonprofit management and my desire to foster compassion and connection throughout the world, and with the help of an amazing board of directors and a team of talented and exceptional teachers, we launched Mind Oasis in 2018.
Our mission is to bring the timeless benefits of meditation to practitioners worldwide.
Since then, thanks to many supporting community members, volunteers, donors, and dedicated teachers, Mind Oasis has blossomed into a meaningful and welcoming co-created space! Our vision is Connecting a Compassionate Global Community and I’m proud to say that is exactly what we are up to each and every day.
Connection. Convenience. Accountability. Inspiration.
Find all this and more to support your meditation practice so that you can show up in the world with greater clarity, ease, kindness, and joy.
