Dina Kaplan started The Path to teach meditation for the modern mind. To date, The Path has taught thousands of people to meditate around the world and at festivals and conferences from SXSW to Sundance and more. Kaplan is a certified meditation teacher and has led meditations at events, for large and small groups, brands and people across the U.S. and throughout Asia and Europe. Kaplan is now gearing up for a special retreat, called Mela, which she created for entrepreneurs, investors, people in business and creatives.

Mela will be led by world-renowned teachers Sharon Salzberg and Will Kabat-Zinn and take place June 21-24 in Sedona, Ariz. "You'll meditate, learn wisdom about conscious leadershipand we'll have fun, too," Kaplan says.
