Be Here Now Network

“Be Here Now,” Ram Dass’ iconic aphorism and “seminal book” have been a part of our cultural fabric since the ’70s, and have guided so many on their paths of self-discovery. Forty years later, it’s still part of the timeless present aiding people in their pursuit of consciousness expansion. Be Here Now is still being here now.

Be Here Now Network hosts podcasts, courses and live events, in conjunction with articles, videos, words of wisdoms and meditations via our site or sent directly to you with our HeartMind app.

The Be Here Now Network is represented by Ram Dass’ community: Krishna Das, Jack Kornfield, SHaron Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, Lama Surya Das, Mindrolling with Raghu Markus, Danny Goldberg and Chris Grosso.

We can change the world by changing our own hearts and radiate that presence out to the world, one heart at a time.
