The gift of practice excels all gifts
The experience of practice excels all experiences
The joy of practice excels all joys.
—The Buddha

Welcome! My name's Bodhipaksa. I've been teaching meditation for over 30 years, and I'm the founder of Wildmind.

This page allows you to give a friend a subscription to Wildmind's Meditation Initiative. Your contribution helps give me the freedom to explore and teach meditation. And it gives many benefits to your friend as well. (If you'd like to subscribe for yourself, please visit this page.)

As a result of your generosity, your friend will get:

  • Access to more than 30 online meditation courses that I've developed in the past. Plus access to any new courses I develop in the future through Wildmind.
  • A monthly newsletter that's just for sponsors.
  • A monthly guided meditation download.
  • An exclusive monthly article on our blog that isn't accessible to regular blog visitors.
  • Membership of an online community of meditation practitioners from around the world, in a special community website.
  • Access to community meditation sessions on Zoom.
  • The satisfaction of knowing that you're supporting this website, which benefits hundreds of thousands of people every year.
  • If your friend is on our mailing list, no more promotional emails about the Initiative!

About Community Shares

Your friend becomes a member of our community when you sponsor one or more "Community Shares." Community Shares are USD $6 a month each.

There are no extra benefits (besides good karma) for sponsoring more shares, but you can do so if you want to show extra appreciation and if you can afford it. I'd certainly be very grateful if you sponsor more than one share.

You can cancel your friend's membership at any time (although of course they'll lose access to the benefits of being a member of our community.

Please note that this initiative does not include access to Bodhipaksa's Bodhi Mind app for iPhone, which requires a separate subscription.

If you have more questions, please head over to our FAQ page.
