Hemera is dedicated to promoting human flourishing. 

Our primary areas of focus are contemplative practice, early childhood development (prenatal to three) and the arts.


The mission of Hemera Foundation is to:

  • Work strategically with our partners to disseminate resources that help people reconnect with the innate goodness and sanity of the human person.
  • Live authentically as a contemplative organization, whereby we challenge ourselves and our partners to approach each project as a process of inquiry, relationship, reflection, and learning.
  • Share what we learn, through both our successes and our failures, with all those looking to help.
  • Be a convener, catalyst, skeptic, and synthesizer in our program fields, as well as in the philanthropic community at large.
