Join Our Community of Practice!
We're building a virtual community of practice ― a space for contemplative + (re)generative meditation practice, open-hearted support + connection, and learning for gifted peers.
More and more gifted and twice-/multi-exceptional people are discovering mindfulness as a sustainable path for navigating life with intensity, complexity, and drive; a way to (re)connect with self, others, and life itself in more skillful, authentic ways.
But it can be hard to find a mindfulness community that understands common gifted challenges and needs. It can also be difficult to maintain and deepen a practice on your own without gifted-specific support and relational mirroring. And many gifted people have spent too much time, out of circumstance, on their own trying to find their way in isolation.
We want to change that.
The Gifted Mindfulness Collective was created as a way for gifted and twice-/multi-exceptional people to come together in community around the practice of mindfulness, to meditate, learn, and support one another on the path of gifted development. In this way, we not only cultivate our personal practices, but also transform our collective experience into a higher level of awareness among ourselves and in the larger world around us. Building a Virtual Community of Practice is a natural and important extension of this mission ... as well as a space that many participants of the gifted mindfulness courses have requested over the years!
