Bart Mendel embarked on a path of meditation practice and study right out of college, including periods of intensive retreat, under some of the world’s most respected meditation masters. After many years of dedicated practice, Bart’s teachers encouraged him to share his knowledge of and enthusiasm for all things meditation with others. At this point, Bart’s been teaching meditation for over 35 years throughout the US, Canada and Europe. As a teacher, he’s known (and loved) for his down-to-earth clarity, passion and humor. Bart is the architect of Mindworks’ progressive meditation and teaching system including the Mindworks Journey.

He’s also a successful entrepreneur. President of Stonemark Construction Management in Southern California, Bart’s accomplishments as a business executive and meditator/teacher make him uniquely qualified to guide others who are looking to integrate personal development and professional success. Read more about Bart and his Zen approach to business. He is also interviewed in Mindworks on how mindfulness creates potential for success in business and in life and teaches our new course The Mindful Executive.

Bart brings a centered approach to life, using meditation to balance family, work and everyday challenges. He and his wife Suzan Garner have two grown sons. Bart and Suzan live in Santa Barbara.
