Who we are. The Mindworks journey begins with CMO (Chief Meditation Officer) Bart Mendel. Bart fell in love with meditation and Buddhist philosophy fresh out of college in the 1970s.
After decades of practicing under the guidance of some of the world’s most accomplished meditation masters, Bart’s teachers asked him to carry the torch. He became known for his down-to-earth, accessible style peppered with irreverent humor.
Meanwhile, internet became a thing. Bart and his wife and co-conspirator Suzan Garner, also a dedicated practitioner, discovered some fine mindfulness teachers and guided meditations online, but they weren’t finding the coherent programs that could lead people from the ABCs of learning mindfulness to the transformative depths of meditation. And they knew this was something they could offer.
Supported by their techie friends Sascha and Laura, Bart and Suzan began to select gems from the treasure trove of teachings they’d received from their own remarkable guides and making them available to others. Together with a powerful international network of fantastic teachers, the original Mindworks team set out to create the best online meditation courses imaginable.
Over the years, the team has evolved and the presentation has developed into a powerful system of advanced, progressive meditation courses. Bart works closely with his son, Mindworks’ artistic director and Chief Creative Officer Tokpa Korlo, while the Mindworks network of mind trainers, meditation coaches and online meditation course offerings continues to expand.
Why we exist. We’ll hand the mic to our happy meditators and graduates of our 9-level Journey to Well-Being:
