The mission of the Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) is to disseminate mindful awareness across the lifespan through education and research. There is a growing population that is incorporating mindfulness into their daily lives, including medical doctors, psychologists, teachers, and community leaders.
Donor support enables us to continue to promote our programs in the community and to foster research on the benefits of mindfulness in health and wellness. Your contributions provide valuable resources in our efforts to make mindfulness more accessible. With your commitment and generosity, we will make greater strides in expanding our educational outreach and carrying out MARC's mission.
October 8 was a landmark day in MARC's history. Over 300 people gathered together to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! In case you missed it, highlights from the day included:
The day was filled with joyful connections, community building, gathering of old friends and new, and much excitement for the Radical Accessibility of Mindfulness Practices (RAMP): taking MARC into the next 10 years with an even bolder and ambitious vision for creating and sharing mindfulness research and practices here in Los Angeles, and around the world.
We have also received an extraordinary affirmation of our work, in the form of a generous gift challenge made in honor of our milestone anniversary. An anonymous donor has committed to match, dollar for dollar, every gift made to MARC in the month of October, up to $10,000! This philanthropic support will help us to expand the reach of our organization, and to continue to develop innovative mindfulness programming that is accessible to all who seek it.
So that we may fully realize the benefit of this generous gift challenge we kindly request that members of the MARC community give as generously as they are able. For information on how to make a gift in support of the center please click here.
