Peter Bonanno, director of program development for the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, is a social entrepreneur, learning designer, and longtime practitioner of mindfulness and tai chi. Motivated by passions for learning, mindfulness, and innovation, he has founded and worked at multiple socially minded startups.
Peter started practicing mindfulness as a teenager, curious about how the mind works and how to make the most of life. He found it helped him shift from being a pessimist and introvert to being more open, appreciative, and empathetic. He enjoys weaving together the many different paths of scientific explorations from psychology to physics to meditation, and helping others rediscover awe, creativity, and joy.
He has taught and spoken about mindfulness at businesses, schools, nonprofits, and for TEDx, and has recorded five-minute guided meditations for improving relationships, letting go, overcoming insecurity, and reducing stress.
