What we do
At Nibbuti, we believe that peace is possible, and that it starts within. Everyday, we promote peace by supporting meditation and mindfulness programs around the globe.
poor mental health
The World Health Organization estimates that 450 million people worldwide suffer from poor mental health. In countries beset by war, there is little access to mental health education, support or treatment. Prolonged mental suffering contributes to poverty, violence, substance abuse, suicide, and radicalization. It prevents individuals and entire segments of society from living peacefully and happily.

Just as a fitness regime helps strengthen the body through physical exercise, meditation practice helps strengthen practitioners' minds through mental exercise. The simple, evidence-based techniques are universal, enhancing one's quality of life through deliberate development of reflection, concentration, observation, and presence of mind. Think of it as a set of mobile tools for everyday life.
Ancient practice. Modern application.
For thousands of years, people have cultivated positive emotions through the practice of meditation. Now, through technologies life neuroimaging and genomics, scientists from Harvard, Stanford and Johns Hopkins, among others, are proving what meditators learned through observation and experience alone: Meditation enhances brain function, develops awareness, regulates emotions, and improves general health.
where our story begins
Nibbuti's mission is simple: Peace, happiness and the allayment of suffering. Our founder, Flavia Wagner, made this her life's purpose while being held hostage in Darfur, Sudan. Upon her release, she discovered a mental training designed to accomplish just that.
