Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D.


My name is Elisha Goldstein. I’ve spent the last 15 years immersing myself in the world of mindfulness, and have written numerous books and articles on the topic, created programs and workshops for adults and teens, and trained therapists, educators, and business executives on how to integrate mindfulness practice into their homes, work, and day-to-day lives.

In studying the research and the world’s wisdom traditions, and through my own extensive teaching, I’ve identified that there is an “x” factor that helps sustain positive brain change, allowing a much deeper integration of mindfulness training and practice so that it changes from a concept or fleeting experience to a way of being.


In A Course in Mindful Living, I have created what I plan to be the Gold Standard in Online Mindfulness Training. This unique mentorship program offers a step-by-step, progressive curriculum where you work on consistently integrating mindfulness practice into your daily life. You’re supported by me, a dedicated mentor, and an accountability group as you deepen the learning experience so that, by the time you complete the training, you’ll have developed a truly self-sustaining mindfulness practice.

In this 6-month program, with an emphasis on Play! you’ll go through 4 specific steps for each of the 6 themes to really integrate the material into your life in an enduring way.

I don’t know of any other online mindfulness training program that’s offering this level of mentorship and support, and I’m very excited to bring this to a global audience with the goal of helping as many people as possible.

If you have any questions about the course, please click on the live chat box on the bottom right of your screen to get in touch.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey!
