– try one now

“Mindful Glimpses” are short meditations that help you shift out of worry, stress and your chattering mind. In less than 10 minutes, you’ll tap into your consciousness that’s already awake, calm, clear and connected.

Hi, I’m Loch Kelly, Founder of Mindful Glimpses app. I’m glad you’re here.

I’m an award-winning author, meditation teacher, psychotherapist, and founder of the 501(c)(3) non-profit, Effortless Mindfulness Institute.

I’m on a mission to help you relieve suffering at its root and live from your basic goodness. We all deserve to live an awakened life (and I believe we can do just that, supported by mindfulness meditation and daily life practices).

I’m passionate about modernizing meditation, enhancing social engagement, and collaborating with neuroscientists to bring the best of science into proximity with the potency of meditation.

What makes Effortless Mindfulness different from
other mindfulness approaches +
psychological interventions?

✔️ Designed for the modern human
Our unique methodology synthesizes ancient wisdom practices, neuroscience, and contemporary psychology. This distinct combination is designed to help you get the most out of mindfulness in this modern world (even if you’re busy, struggle with focus, or wear many hats in your life).

✔️ An effortless path to greater peace, clarity and calm
With Effortless Mindfulness, the focus is not on developing the skill of mental stability or concentration (which is the defining feature of many mainstream mindfulness systems). Rather, you’re shifting OUT of an unstable stage of adult development into a calm, clear and knowing awareness that can become the foundation from which you live more skillfully. 

✔️ A system for greater resilience

This practice style essentially helps you unplug the computer and hit refresh on your inner system. Doing this consistently actually helps your system function more effectively for the long term, leading to strong resilience to face life’s joys and challenges with enduring balance.

✔️ Address the root issues
This practice style is about familiarizing yourself with a new stage of human development. You are updating the whole operating system, so the patterns that consistently play out in that operating system start to shift or dissolve. If you have a hard time going deeper with your meditation practice, we think you’ll love this feature of Effortless Mindfulness.

✔️ Stop trying so hard
We invite you to stop ‘focusing more,’ and tap into an effortless awareness. Thousands of our students are enjoying a deep meditation practice, as well as higher levels of compassion, calm, and clarity more often (without as much effort).
