Tuning the Student Mind

An outgrowth of the college course, the Tuning the Student Mind foundation supports colleges and universities as they pilot consciousness-based educational experiences for students and faculty.  Offering both consultation and seed grants, the Tuning the Student Mind Foundation helps educators develop curricula that focus on connection over separation, collaboration over competition, and academic inquiry as a complement to deepening consciousness and self-awareness.

Past projects include sending faculty to conferences, supporting student projects and teaching over 1,000 students to meditate. This fall the foundation will be sponsoring a series of lectures at the University of Michigan.  The lecture series will be a part of the Creativity and Consciousness Program started by Professor Ed Sarath, School of Music, Dance and Theatre.

Join our effort to bring a consciousness based educational initiative to your college campus.



“Tuning the Student Mind is innovative, compassionate education at its best. TTSM programs challenge students to own life-long learning, all while cultivating creativity, individuality, and a deeper sense of self. These programs empower and inspire young minds, and should be made part of the undergraduate core curriculum.”    – Mary Waldon, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, www.ChangeTherapy.com
“I think Molly’s program offers a chance for students to calm and quiet their inner chatter. To disconnect from the hyper-connected world around them. To go inward and perhaps redefine aspects of their identity that may be limiting their potential. Open doors to other avenues of consciousness that perhaps they never considered. All of these avenues I would argue enable students to reach new creative bounds that will set them apart from their colleagues.”    – Val Weiss, Director of Wellness, College for Creative Studies
“As the use of meditation and related practices steadily finds its way into health care, business, education and other areas of society, I view Tuning the Student Mind as one of the most exciting examples of this work in the academic world. Combining robust inquiry into the nature of the self and personal identity with methodologies for directly experiencing deeper dimensions of consciousness, it is difficult to imagine a more powerful, transformative, and inspiring embodiment of what a 21st century college or university classroom might look like.”    – Edward W. Sarath, Program in Creativity and Consciousness Studies, The University of Michigan
