Who We Are

The Mindfulness Project was founded in 2005 by Metta McGarvey, an advanced doctoral student in Adult Development in the Human Development and Psychology Program at Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Her research is on mindfulness as a catalyst for adult development and emotional intelligence. Her thesis research is on the development of emotional skills and capacities in context of leadership development training.

Metta completed the practicum in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester in 2004, and has been practicing mindfulness and meditation for 25 years. She has a bachelorís degree from the University of Chicago where she studied Psychology and Religions, majoring in Sanskrit and Theravada Buddhism; and she has a masterís degree from Harvard Divinity School where she studied Tibetan Buddhism and language.

All courses are currently taught by Metta McGarvey.


Metta is currently developing resources to offer in the Boston and South Shore areas with Marie Peeler who offers leadership coaching through her consulting practice, Peeler Associates.

Another colleague, Richard Geller, offers corporate meditation programs through his business, MedWorks. If you are interested in having meditation programs offered in your workplace, please visit his website.
