Liza Kindred is an author, speaker & founder of “Mindful Technology”.

Liza has also appeared in the The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Financial Times, Market Watch and other publications.
After spending twenty years working in fashion & technology, eventually specializing in wearable tech, Liza became alarmed by the lack of attention being paid to whether these devices were serving us… or the other way around. As a meditator for eight years, a student of Shambhala Buddhism & a reiki practitioner, she began talking about this disparity, & eventually developed the principles behind “Mindful Technology”, which have been wildly well-received as while nearly everyone loves technology, they also want to escape from its grips from time to time. This is the genesis behind “Mindful Technology” the company & the #mindfultech movement.
