Mindfulness Without Borders grew out of the courageous vision of founder Theo Koffler to cultivate learning environments where people of all cultures can develop an intelligence of the heart and accelerate the advancement of peace. Theo saw an opportunity to make an impact in countries that experienced conflict and violence and with a small, dedicated team, they began working under the name of Between4Eyes. Educational programs for youth, their educators and health professionals were developed to foster the development of social and emotional skills, secular mindfulness practices and community. Inspired by the results on the ground, we crossed the Atlantic Ocean and seeded our programs in North America under name of Mindfulness Without Borders as a US and Canadian registered charitable organization.
