The US is facing its greatest crisis yet. 2017 saw the lowest level of mental health and wellbeing on record in the US (Gallup). Stress is costing the US economy over $300B annually. Anxiety and depression are epidemics. It’s overwhelmingly clear that New York is a large contributor to these statistics.
1 Giant Mind is on a mission to turn these statistics on their head. And we invite you to join us!
1 Giant Mind are global leaders in meditation education. They specialize in training passionate meditators to become impactful teachers, bringing meditation into communities around the world.
You are invited to the Open Center for a special event. Join 1 Giant Mind co-founder and master meditation teacher Jonni Pollard in a discussion about why, more than ever before, meditation is so important for New York’s wellbeing and how you can become the solution.
Our contemporary moment is challenging and exhausting. Become a meditation teacher, and bring this powerful practice to your community. Give your neighbors and friends the tools required to cope and thrive, even in adverse conditions. Create an impactful and positive change to make a positive change on an individual and city-wide level.
If you feel called to make a powerful impact in people’s lives, this evening should not be missed.

Jonni has studied meditation and how to unfold human potential for over 25 years. He made his first pilgrimage to India in his late teens and studied under master teachers in both the East and the West. In 2011, Jonni co-founded 1 Giant Mind, a non-profit organization for education and research around the effects of mass mediations. Soon after, 1 Giant Mind launched its free mobile app, which has taught more than 250,000 people how to meditate and remains free today. In 2018, 1 Giant Mind became a for-profit organization, carrying its impact forward by introducing its Teacher Training Academy, which develops and certifies meditation teachers around the world. As a part of its commitment to making meditation as accessible as possible, 1 Giant Mind also launched the 1 Giant Mind podcast where Jonni answers questions from a live audience. Jonni is the author of The Golden Sequence: A Manual for Reclaiming Our Humanity, which is now on pre-sale. He lives in New York City with his wife and daughter, and he continues to teach around the world.
