We offer clear guidance in the form of classes, courses, retreats, newsletters and blogs that support the cultivation of a consistent and meaningful practice.

We inspire practice by sharing the wisdom of ancient teachings, experienced teachers, and an active and welcoming community of practitioners.

KELLY LINDSEY

Mind-Body Therapist, Meditation Teacher,
Co-founder of Dakini Meditative

Kelly’s meditative journey began more than twenty years ago and has included many different styles of practice and paths of study. She has completed the two-year Shambhala School of Buddhist Studies; Sutrayana Seminary; a six-year advanced Buddhist studies program at Diamond Mountain University; and many individual and group retreats, including several that were a month long. Having received formal instruction in different Tibetan Buddhist lineages, Kelly has found a wonderful integration of deep practice and study realized in the context of everyday life.

She’s found that all of these teachings have culminated in one main lesson: how to live in the world with an open heart. Her spiritual practice is inextricably connected to her daily life, as she brings together her roles of mother, meditation teacher, mind-body therapist, and entrepreneur. She’s found that the Buddhist teachings have provided an essential guide for how to live an authentic and meaningful life. She actively shares these teachings with those around her, both through embodying them in her life as well as through teaching classes, both locally and online through Dakini Meditative and TheMindOasis.org.

Kelly lives in Austin, TX with her greatest teachers: her three children, Hunter, Elise, and Jackson, her husband, Adam, and their dog, Sammy.

DR. ADAM SMITH

Physician, Meditation Teacher, Co-founder of Dakini Meditative

Born in the Bahamas to an English mother and Guyanese father who were Canadian citizens at the time, Adam learned from early age the benefits of an open mind.

Adam first encountered meditation at the age of sixteen and the seed was planted. He practiced episodically over the next few decades, yet many aspects of mindfulness and self-awareness were guiding principles in his life. Over the past decade, he has been formally pursuing mindfulness and meditation practices, eagerly consuming new research in the emerging fields of mindfulness and coaching psychology, and incorporating them into his life, both personally and professionally.

Adam’s work is largely focused on those in the healthcare industry, helping clinicians discover, or rediscover meaning, purpose and effectiveness in their work. Through exploration of self-compassion and self-care, he teaches clinicians how to enhance their relationships to themselves, their work, and their patients. These shifts invariably translate to a higher quality of clinician experience, which gets paid forward in the form of improved, and more compassionate, care for patients, all while serving as a buffer against burnout.

His greatest teachers have been and are his family, which includes his wife, Kelly Lindsey, co-founder of Dakini Meditative, their children, parents, and furry companions, most notably the Samdog.
