Our Ambassadors

Our ambassadors help us take Smiling Mind to exciting new places. They are our advocates, our influencers and they have a passion for making a difference in the world.

Mindfulness meditation plays an important part in all of their lives, and they understand and experience its many benefits. They believe strongly in Smiling Mind’s vision and work to support us in any way they can.
