About Us

Founded in 2013 by Cigdém Kobu, Mindfulist is a ​US-based company dedicated to helping visionary ​people discover a sense of joy, aliveness and ​clarity in their creative and entrepreneurial ​pursuits.

Our approach employs the triple power of inquiry, ​empathy and story, with a dash of simplicity.

Our step-by-step tools, in-depth programs and ​stimulating gatherings will give you opportunities ​for reflection and renewal, from which you can ​step into creating what matters to you the most.

With restored vitality, confidence and ease.

"The most regretful people on Earth are those who ​felt the call to creative work, who felt their own ​creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it ​neither power nor time."

“After participating in

Cigdém’s programs, my way of ​thinking about the challenges ​and obstacles in my life has ​shifted. I’ve developed a new ​mental approach and attitude

to deal with them. Each of her ​offers is an opportunity to ​put ourselves first for a ​change.”

“This is the most sacred and ​safest space to write I've ​discovered online. And this ​class is a great way of ​gathering content for a book.

It was delightful. What a ​wonderful experience and a ​fantastic collection of ​writers and writing! I'm going ​to miss this group."

“I would have never been able

to do on my own all the deep ​digging that Cigdém guided me ​through. My business is now ​booming in all directions.

Great new clients, speaking ​gigs, teaching, art. I'm so ​happy!"

“Writing. Stamina. I love this ​experience. Our writing is ​becoming a string of stories ​that paint a much larger ​picture. The words are flowing ​and they just won’t stop. ​Maybe I will write that book ​some day.”
