For 17 years, SF Awakened Mind has focused on expanding consciousness through meditation, mindfulness and personal empowerment. Founded in 2000, our practice is rooted in Indo-Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. Although we integrate the core ancient teachings of several Buddhist traditions, our practice is designed to be practical for people practicing in the modern, western world.

We focus on applying the balance and clarity achieved in meditation to all areas of life including career success, personal empowerment and vitality. Our community seeks to uplift and reveal the truth in all beings by going beyond limitations. We practice mind-body spiritual connection, creating gender balance, and women's empowerment through career advancement.
