The Mindful Diversity framework is about de-polarizing the conversation on difference. It is about bridging by both celebrating our differences and similarities. Using cutting-edge neuroscience along with somatic and social psychology, complexity theory, and mindfulness you can learn to skillfully navigate the complex terrain of difference.

Founded by Angella Okawa, MA, LMFT (#83306), Mindful Diversity brings together her multi-disciplinary background in design thinking, psychology, integral coaching, and mindfulness to create a comprehensive and compassionate way of cultivating belonging.
