Kelley Griffiths

Chief Operating Officer

Kelley is passionate about the intersection of contemplative practice, collective liberation, and how we can lead and run more conscious organisations.

She has spent 15 years in various management roles, most recently acting as Director of Operations for Switzerland’s largest independent marketplace for tradespeople.

Fascinated by Buddhism from a young age, she moved to London to study Classical and Contemporary Tibetan Language and the Theory of Religion at London’s SOAS University but didn’t complete it. Instead, she managed a nightclub and started a globe-making business with a friend. Realising she had a talent for business and management, she graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in Theatre Production before joining a world-leading contemporary circus as an Associate Producer and International Tour Manager.

In the last six years, she has completed professional courses in Yoga and Mindfulness for Addictions, Yoga Nidra Teacher Training, Meditation Teacher Training, and Cognitively-Based Compassion Training with Emory University. Most recently, she graduated from Nalanda Institute’s two-year Contemplative Psychotherapy program and is now completing an online master’s at King’s College London in the Psychology & Neuroscience of Mental Health.
