Mirabai has been a pioneer in the work to bring contemplative awareness and values into mainstream settings. The Center’s Business Program began under Mirabai’s leadership in 1996, working with Monsanto to develop the first program in the country of in-depth insight meditation within a large corporation, including off-site retreats as well as on-site courses in meditation, full-day retreats in silence, and a dedicated meditation room at each corporate location. The program included discussions of personal and professional responsibility and visionary leadership among scientists and managers faced with critical decisions in agricultural and pharmaceutical biotechnology.
