Brad Bender, MSW

Brad’s meditation journey began in 2010, igniting a passion for mindfulness that has since become a cornerstone of his life. Seeking ways to integrate and share the benefits of meditation, Brad began incorporating short guided sessions into his professional meetings, fostering a more centered and harmonious work environment.

In 2017, Brad committed to a regular meditation practice after completing the 10-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) course. This pivotal experience deepened his dedication, leading him to participate in a variety of workshops and further his training. In 2024, Brad earned his Meditation Teacher Training in Mindfulness and Compassion from The Path, solidifying his expertise.

Driven by a belief in the transformative power of meditation, Brad is passionate about sharing this practice with others. He sees meditation as a catalyst for positive social change and radical self-development. By teaching and guiding others, Brad hopes to soften the hard edges of humanity and inspire a more compassionate world.

His personal journey includes a continuous pursuit of peace and healing from a community impacted by addiction, trauma, and abuse. Through meditation, Brad strives to find balance and resilience. Brad identifies as a white, cisgender, gay man who uses he/him pronouns.

Brad graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Central Michigan University and a Master of Social Work from Michigan State University. Brad further developed his project management knowledge, experience, and skills by becoming Project Management Professional (PMP) certified by the Project Management Institute.
