BOULDER, Colorado – March 10, 2016 – SakyongMipham Rinpoche – global visionary, marathon runner, international leader of the mindful running movement, and author of Running With the Mind of Meditation (RWTM) — launched a Kickstarter campaign to expand this ground-breaking work into an easy-to-access online platform. Rinpoche and his team developed an online course and community for mindful runners. The goal is to raise $25,000 by March 29, 2016.
This 7-week online course and membership site will teach people how to run for their well being. The Sakyong hopes to alleviate the negative physical and mental effects of a sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle with the Mindful Running Movement. The course offers techniques, tools, and profound wisdom to teach people with busy lives a way to enjoy the benefits of moving the body and stilling the mind, simultaneously.

Some reported benefits of mindful athletics:
• Improve focus and performance
• Reduce pain, avoid injury, and recover quicker
• Increase wellbeing in daily life and retirement
• Manage goals and training, increasing enjoyment
Josh Weinstein—head of the RWTM online project—says, “Mindfulness of movement is an ancient art being explored in a new context. The Sakyong is an inspirational figure to hundreds of thousands. Our goal is to bring his teaching and innovative practice to more than 20 million dedicated runners around the world and to anyone committed to improving their health and wellbeing.”
