The HeartAwake Center is a non-profit corporation serving human development, including spiritual awakening and transformation. The Center is neo-Buddhist oriented (drawing upon Buddhist principles adapted to modern Western culture and interfaith influences) and is open to people of any or no religious tradition.

Alan Zundel, the director, has 40 years of experience with meditation and spiritual practice and had a breakthrough in 2002 through the American spiritual teacher AdyashantiAlan began teaching a few years later when invited to give a talk to a San Francisco Buddhist group, and formed the HeartAwake Center after moving to Eugene, Oregon in 2006.
