MESSAGE FROM co-FOUNDER Holly Rogers
Redefining the Way We Approach Meditation
During my time working with students at Duke University, I witnessed firsthand the incredible potential of mindfulness in alleviating the overwhelming stress students faced. However, when it came to teaching mindfulness, I encountered the challenge of keeping students fully engaged.
Together with my colleague Margaret Maytan, I embarked on a journey to redefine meditation instruction for emerging adults. Our goal was to create a tailored class specifically designed for students, focusing on practical skills that would empower them to manage stress, enhance focus, and gain valuable perspectives on their personal challenges.
The impact we witnessed was remarkable.
Today, the Mindfulness Institute for Emerging Adults (formerly known as Koru Mindfulness) is dedicated to fulfilling its mission: training educators at colleges and universities to deliver mindfulness teachings to the young adults they serve, utilizing our evidence-based curriculum. Our vision extends far beyond the classroom — we aspire to create a world where emerging adults everywhere embrace joyful and meaningful lives, guided by the wisdom and compassion that mindfulness cultivates.
Together, let’s transform the way we approach mindfulness and empower a generation to thrive.
