Professionalization of Mindfulness
The International Mindfulness Teachers Association (IMTA) is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to the professionalization and standardization of the mindfulness field.
As mindfulness rapidly enters many sectors of society - medicine, healthcare, psychology, education, business academia, social justice, judicial reform, and more - there has been a call for rigorous oversight and standardization. That’s where we come in.
