Our Mission

The Stanford Heartfulness Lab explores the power of heartfulness as a guiding light in living a good life. We develop, implement, and maintain programs designed to promote transformative learning in community at Stanford University and in the wider society.



Heartfulness is a way of being based in mindfulness, compassion, and responsibility. Embracing vulnerability we cross borders within ourselves and between ourselves and others. Cultivating humility, gratitude, deep listening, and acceptance, we become more authentic and kinder to ourselves and all other beings. We experience inter-connectedness and live with a sense of purpose and belief in service to a greater good.
