In 1996, eSanctuary went live as a website designed to bring people room across the world together to meditate--at the same time, in the same space.

Since that time, the Institute for Mindfulness Studies has developed a family of websites and services to share mindfulness insights an exercises with different groups and across a variety of subject matters.

Still, the mission of the eSanctuary service remains a core interest. As technology allows for a more direct connectedness of people across the globe, eSanctuary will play a role creatively and meaningfully bringing people together, so that each of us can more directly come to know ourselves.
