Mindfulness Exercises is an online platform which shares free and premium mindfulness resources for mindfulness practitioners and mindfulness meditation teachers alike.
We were founded by Sean Fargo in 2014 with the intention to help people live with embodied presence, compassion and resilience.
Practicing mindfulness allows us to relate to ourselves and others with greater care and wisdom. As we engage with our world differently, we notice our own experience of life shifting in fulfilling ways.
Over 20 million people have benefited from the free and premium resources on our site, including downloadable meditations, guided meditation scripts, mindfulness worksheets, courses, content and live online retreats. By 2023, we hope to have shared mindfulness with over 20 million people in the following ways:
Generosity is our primary practice. We offer over 2,000 FREE online resources to support individuals, teachers and organizations - and add more free content every day.
Compassion is empathy in action. Mindfulness has the power to free us from our pain, for a life of happiness and ease - and it’s our wish that all beings everywhere realize this potential.
Community is our reason for being. We exist because of you, and we’re here for you. Together, we’ll create the world we long to live in.

About Our Founder
Sean Fargo founded Mindfulness Exercises with the goal of offering simple tools that could help people meet their struggles, pain, and challenges with more ease.
After deeply immersing myself in mindfulness practice as a Buddhist monk in Thailand, I noticed a shift in the way I related to myself and others that I wanted to bring to the communities around me. Since then, I have spent the last 10 years focused on building out mindfulness practices across organizations, into the community, and across the globe.
I have worked alongside mindfulness pioneers such as Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach, Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg, and I have taught mindfulness and meditation for corporations including Tesla, Kaiser Permanente, Facebook, Ernst & Young, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In 2014, I founded Mindfulness Exercises where over 20 million people have benefited from the free and premium resources on our site, including downloadable meditations, guided meditation scripts, mindfulness worksheets, courses, content and live online retreats.
Currently, I serve as a Lead Teacher for our Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification which is a unique, self-paced program balancing pre-recorded sessions with live mentorship and community engagement. Additionally, I serve as an Instructor for Google’s in-house mindfulness program.
Mindfulness is being aware of our moment-to-moment experience without judgment. Simple, but not easy. As a father and a husband, I understand how hard it can be to remain fully present in the seemingly ordinary moments of daily life. I am here to help.
