David Hart

Hello. My name is David.

I teach meditation and mindfulness. 
I also make media (writing, audio, video)
for non-profits, museums, publishers, and decent people. 

I am not the David Hart that makes ties.


Meditation & Mindfulness

I teach meditation and mindfulness for youth and adults. 

Clients include creative agencies, law firms, financial services firms, schools, and hospitals.  

I'm interested in helping people develop more attention, understanding, and connection.

Occasionally I write things like greeting cards (seriously) or short humor pieces on sites like McSweeney's. Please don't ask me to come up with taglines for your app.
