Grant Writer - Help Us Firmly Establish California Mindfulness Institute, For A Mindful World Note: We appreciate applicants who read through to the end and contact us as we have requested. 1 billion optimized by 2042 Our Founder’s message: This is a pivotal time in human history, a stark reminder that our approach to life has reduced our planet’s resilience and capacity to regenerate itself. Throughout the history of humanity, we’ve attempted, in countless ways, to create comfort, longevity, and wealth, and resolve our own issues of discontentment and inequalities. Yet, we are far from it. We’ve not only not resolved them, but our ways of life and consumption have also brought our beloved planet Earth to rapidly move away from safety and abundance towards destruction. Fires creating their own climate, temperatures rising in some places while plummeting in other locations, floods, desertification, deforestation, decarbonization, and climate change are all threatening life for today and the future. All of this adds to a myriad of anxieties already threatening our sense of well-being and happiness. It’s time to educate and develop new perspectives and ways of life that bring us into balance and harmony. We believe we have the answer in the form of our training solution, which can help us to build a better future for humanity and our planet. 1. Human dissatisfaction has not been resolved, causing more unhappiness and problems. Considerable advancements in science, medicine, culture, religion, philosophy, and art have not been able to solve the issues of biases, inequality, identity crisis, stress, worry, and general unhappiness that many are facing. We are not properly programmed to understand life and lack many skills to live an integrated life. 2. This unskillfulness has also caused environmental issues that are not only detrimental to the planet but also perpetuate anxiety and unhappiness. We continue to be traumatized and cause trauma, which is worsened by rising eco-anxiety, fear, and uncertainty.
