About us

“Kathleen Hall is a pioneer in the Mindful Living movement of the 21st Century.”

Dr. Kathleen Hall is the founder and CEO of The Stress Institute, and Mindful Living Network.

After many years working as an international stress expert at The Stress Institute, Dr. Hall noticed society’s lack of awareness that every thought, word and action affected their health. She realized that living mindfully is an antidote to stress, and subsequently founded Mindful Living Network in 2007 to promote mindfulness, health, stress resilience, and work life balance.

As a thought leader in the Mindful Living® field, she provides individuals, corporations and organizations with the training, education, original programming, and tangible solutions to create Mindful Living – both mentally and physically. She offers information and training backed with scientific research for reducing stress, mindful living and creating balance.

During times of stress and crisis – the Washington Naval Yard shooting, the Newtown Massacre, the West Virginia and Utah coal miner tragedies, Katrina ravaging the Gulf Coast, Air France crash in Canada, London terrorist bombing, and the Runaway Bride – the national television and print media consistently seek the authoritative knowledge, information and direction of Dr. Kathleen Hall.
