The story of Search Inside Yourself

Search Inside Yourself was born at Google in 2007. One of Google’s earliest engineers gathered a team om leading experts in mindfulness, neuroscience, leadership and emotional intelligence.

Major contributors to SIY included meditation teachers Mirabai Bush, Norman Fisher and Yvonne Ginsberg. Neuroscientist Philippe Goldin and business leaders Marc Lesser. SIY also drew extensively from the work and advisory of leading experts Daniel Goleman, Richard Davidson and Jon Kabat-Zinn.

This professional team together developed an internal course for Google employees and lovingly called it ‘Search Inside Yourself’. What a great name for the worlds’ largest search engine. The aim of SIY was and still is to help people develop the skills of mindfulness and emotional intelligence to create the conditions for individual and collective thriving.

Very quickly SIY become quite  popular training program within Google. Due to the high demand from external organizations, the independent non-profit educational institute “Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute’ was founded in 2012. The abbreviation is pronounced as ‘silly’ – to keep it light,

SIYLI has become a globally recognised institute. 100.000+ participants in 50+ countries and 150+ cities have now attended this wonderful program. SIYLI continues to work with Google as well as 300+ corporate non-profit and government organizations around the world, like: SAP, LinkedIn, the United Nations, Procter & Gamble and Salesforce.
