EMI Equity & Social Justice Statement

Natural Wakefulness Center is a 501c3 non-profit public charity whose educational community is called the Effortless Mindfulness Institute. The practice of effortless mindfulness allows us to deepen our capacity to access open-hearted awareness, shift out of our dualistic mind, live from a deep sense of interconnection, and engage in compassionate activity. From this awareness, we commit to practicing equity and social justice in a way that counters systemic discrimination of all kinds and supports the safety and well-being of all who attend our programs.

At the Effortless Mindfulness Institute (EMI), we welcome the mission of healing the personal, generational, and collective trauma caused in all of us through systemic and institutional injustice. We recognize that we all have unconscious biases from our individual and social conditioning.  We are dedicated to help everyone access their wise authentic Self that feels, sees and acts courageously from the realization we are all equal.

We are dedicated to fostering accessible, just, and equitable courses and workshops that all people can experience as a place of refuge, healing, and learning.

We wholeheartedly welcome students of all races, ethnicities, ancestry, gender expressions, national origins, financial situations, abilities, sizes, religions, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic backgrounds. As a nonprofit public charity we do outreach to underserved communities and offer scholarships to those in need to attend the events we offer.
