At the Fetzer Institute, we believe in the possibility of a loving world: a world where we understand we are all part of one human family and know our lives have purpose. In the world we seek, everyone is committed to courageous compassion and bold love—powerful forces for good in the face of fear, anger, division, and despair.

Inspired by our founder John E. Fetzer, we encourage each other to discover new ways of knowing our sacred world and explore our personal spiritual journeys as we work toward transformed communities and societies in which all people can flourish.

Each member of our team—and each of our partners committed to this common vision—brings a unique spiritual and religious lens, but all of us are drawn into community by our shared sense of sacred connection to ourselves, each other and our planet. And together, we inspire and serve a global movement transforming the world into a more loving home for all.

Mindful is the voice of the emerging mindfulness community. We’re the place to go for insight, information, and inspiration to help us all live more mindfully.

From our flagship Mindful magazine and mindful.org to our conferences and collaborations, our activities support people seeking to learn more as well as those leaders working to bring genuine mindfulness practices into the mainstream.

Greater Good magazine turns scientific research into stories, tips, and tools for a happier life and a more compassionate society.

Greater Good magazine is published by the Greater Good Science Center (GGSC) at the University of California, Berkeley. Since 2001, the GGSC has been at the fore of a new scientific movement to explore the roots of happy and compassionate individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior—the science of a meaningful life.

The world we have created as a species is far from being the place to be proud of. However, there are people and institutions who work tirelessly to make the world better, whether at a small or a large scale.

The World Happiness Foundation aims to support those leaders and institutions that are making the world a happier place for humans. So we encourage and reward smart innovation, holistic education and research and activism to achieve that happiness is within reach of the largest number of people.

The Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience at Arizona State University unveils the power of mindful living to advance our well-being and engagement through learning and connecting with the larger community.

Under the leadership of Professor and Registered Nurse Teri Pipe, ASU’s Chief Well-Being Officer, this initiative focuses on deepening ASU's culture of healthfulness, personal balance and resiliency among students and employees.

This new center will bring together a vast array of interests in order to best honor the needs of the university's diverse population. We will promote and connect mindfulness efforts currently underway as well as inspire and support future endeavors across ASU campuses, within Phoenix and the surrounding communities.

The American Mindfulness Research Association (AMRA) was founded in 2013. Our mission is to support empirical and conceptual efforts to: (1) establish an evidence base for the process, practice, and construct of mindfulness; (2) promote best evidence-based standards for the use of mindfulness research and its applications; and (3) facilitate discovery and professional development through grant giving.

AMRA serves as a professional resource to the sciences and humanities, practice communities, and the broader public on mindfulness from the perspective of contemplative practice.
AMRA…Informing mindfulness research and practice.

AAMI (Asociación Argentina de Medicina Integrativa) is pioneer in the education of Integrative Medicine approaches in Latin America. AAMI was founded by Dr. Susi Reich and colleagues in 2002. Its main objective is to understand and encourage the use of evidence-informed complementary and nonconventional medicines among physicians, health agents, and general population as well. AAMI provides transdisciplinary attention to patients with noninvasive and compassionate therapies.

Launched as a national magazine in 1998, Spirituality & Health is now a complete resource including print, spiritualityhealth.com, podcasts, courses, travel, and events. We draw from the wisdom of many traditions and cultures with an emphasis on sharing practices. We look to science to help provide a context for the spiritual quest. We acknowledge that in our language the words “whole,” "health," and "holy" share a common root.  

We cover a broad range of topics under the umbrella of health and spirituality, which can include:

  • faith, Eastern philosophy, meditation, and mainstream religion
  • nutrition, wellness, yoga, and holistic medicine
  • creativity, the inner life, social justice, and issues of conscience
  • public health, the human body, and the environment. 

Join us on the journey.
