MBA Project founder Noah Levine led “Detachment Day,” a day-long meditation retreat for Google employees which was held at Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society on May 8th.
Over 50 attendees gathered to practice walking and sitting meditation led by Noah, and were encouraged to disconnect from all electronic devices. Noah spoke about compassion for self and other, among other skills and practices that MBA Project instructors often bring to youth in juvenile hall.
The MBA Project is honored to have the support of Noah, who spoke about his personal connection to the MBA Project, and the impact meditation had during his time in juvenile hall. Noah kindly donated his speaker fee of $5,000 to the MBA Project.
Additionally, Google recently honored us with their generosity by donating $10,000 in a matching grant. You, too, can help us share meditation instruction and compassion to youth inside juvenile hall.
