Mindvalley University, a lifelong learning programme, founded by the Malaysian entrepreneur, Vishen Lakhiani, and his Estonian-born wife, Kristina Mänd Lakhiani, brings hundreds of learners from all around the world to Tallinn.
Tallinn’s Kultuurikatel hosts the Mindvalley University from 22 June to 22 July in the Estonian capital- writes estonianworld.com
The Kuala Lumpur-based organisation was started by Lakhiani and his Estonian wife in 2003 when the couple realised there was a great potential for meditation and personal development in the digital world. Few years prior, Lakhiani had turned to meditation to deal with the stress of his IT job in a New York legal company. Inspired, he became a qualified instructor and began teaching meditation classes.
“It all started with $700 and a beat-up Toshiba laptop at Starbucks,” Vishen said in a statement, recalling the start of Mindvalley. Today, the company claims to employ 200 employees from 40 different nations, having built it up with no investment from angel investors, venture capitalists or with the help of government grants.
According to the company, over three million people have participated in Mindvalley’s events and programmes around the world. “The company’s mission is to empower people to live healthier and happier lives, unleash their full potential and be extraordinary by introducing them to tools and ideas that are currently missing from the traditional education systems,” Mindvalley said in a statement.
