Why Flourish?

Given that our mental and emotional life determines how we view and engage in the world, to inspire positive changes in science, education, politics, the environment, social justice, and in ourselves we must nurture virtuous states of mind on a daily basis.

Our Programs


If we can cultivate true inner contentment and free ourselves from the confines of self-centeredness, greed and hatred then it may be possible to live sustainably with the personal conviction of being more rather than having more. With this shift from quantitative to qualitative growth, each one of us can peacefully and wholeheartedly contribute to preserving the conditions of life for all future generations.

To fulfill our mission we offer a wide variety of programs for all phases of life – from mindfulness-based childbirth and parenting to mindfulness programs for seniors.

“What Flourish does is give kids the key to unlock their inner world. We investigate the meaning of compassion, empathy, inner strength, and resilience. We teach kids and adults how to relax – something that many of us don’t know how to do. We show people how to watch their thoughts without getting tugged around by them, which I truly believe is the foundation of deep and long lasting happiness.”

— Emilie Crist, Flourish Board Member & Mindful Awareness Facilitator
