The Mind Body Awareness Project was founded in June of 2000 by Noah Levine


The Mind Body Awareness Project was founded in June of 2000 by Noah Levine and a group of his close friends. As with many self- destructive kids, Noah's search for meaning led him first to punk rock, drugs, drinking, and dissatisfaction. But the search didn't end there. Having clearly seen the futility of drugs and violence, Noah looked for positive ways to channel his anger and rebellion.


Noah reached a turning point when he began practicing mindfulness-based meditation while locked up in the Santa Cruz juvenile hall. Meditation had a transformational effect on Noah, and after practicing it for over five years, he decided that he wanted to share the practice that had transformed his life with others.


Noah, along with Isaiah Seret, Scott Diamond, Catherine Diamond, and Jonathan Raymond founded The MBA Project with this mission. We started our first few classes in Santa Cruz and we have expanded significantly. Noah is now a well-known meditation teacher who leads retreats nationally as well as leading groups in juvenile halls and prisons.
