Technology for Mindfulness
Technology for Mindfulness is an experiential and educational organization committed to helping people take charge of their relationship with technology.
Since 2015 we have helped countless people to develop practical skills to interact with, manage, and use technology intentionally to achieve their goals, rather than being controlled by technology.
Our unique approach combines insights and practices from science, technology, mindfulness, and martial arts to equip people with strategies and habits to reset their minds, reflect on their behaviors, and reconnect with the world around them.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
As a computer scientist, MIT alumnus, and patent attorney specializing in computer technology, Robert Plotkin has been immersed in the tech landscape for decades.
Almost equally as long, he’s been a mindfulness practitioner and Japanese martial artist. This unique combination of expertise sparked Robert’s fascination with the relationship between technology and mindfulness.
He’s written seven books on the social impact of technology, co-founded the Hack Your Mind series at MIT, and trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. In 2015, he launched Technology for Mindfulness based on his unique O.R.D.E.R. methodology and his passion for helping people to break free of the grip of digital distraction.
Today, in addition to leading Technology for Mindfulness, he’s the creator of Tap Into Mindfulness, a course that teaches people to take control of their smartphone use, and a sought after speaker and expert on using technology mindfully.
Through intensive research, in-depth articles, discussions with experts, and thoughtfully developed solutions, we seek to encourage a more intentional digital world by offering mindfulness as a solution available to everyone at all stages of their lives.
