I am super stoked you have arrived in this warm and welcoming space!
Mind Oasis provides gathering spaces and connection for any person who is interested in meditation or mindfulness, regardless of affiliation. Mind Oasis is uniquely positioned to achieve its vision as an oasis of compassion, and a potent antidote to stress and isolation. Mind Oasis’ offerings include daily live online guided meditation sessions, classes and series, and engaging content and events.
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 share the timeless benefits of meditation and mindfulness practices with people 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!
Mind Oasis envisions co-created, joyful, and compassionate communities. We do this by offering accessible meditative practices that nurture global spaces of well-being.
Free to join and accessed through our Mighty Network. 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.
Classes on Mind Oasis are designed to amplify and align your life through deeper studies to support your meditative and spiritual life.
Most sessions are offered in a multi-week series format to encourage a routine that supports your meditation practice. We offer one-off workshops as well.
