Mobius is a family office that seeks to leverage multiple forms of capital to address suffering and incline compassion, kindness and well being for all.
Who we are
A large focus is on addressing the harms and inequities of the global factory farming industry on the environment, public health, and the animals.
Inspired by multiple wisdom traditions, we see the internal life as intimately related to the external world, so mindfulness is a key part of how we show up. We are also aware of the context of ecocide that we are in, and curious about loving responses through this period.
Our projects range from philanthropic donations, to providing PRI/debt capital, to offering meditation retreats, to investments in companies and funds, to policy and advocacy, to building movement organizations.
It’s all part of an approach called ‘integrated capital’.
What we do
Owned living and working spaces retrofit to high environmental standards
Bringing distributed solar both to the spaces above, and to third parties
Compassion for the least fortunate
Reducing the quantity and quality of suffering for animals raised for food through building awareness of industrialized factory farming, developing alternatives and supporting systems shift
Inviting in processes of human development through growing perspectives with friends and partner orgs by supporting development of qualities such as mindfulness, gratitude, generosity, and noble friendship
Preparation for upheaval
Enhancing resilience possibilities for individuals and groups as the brittle systems we are so dependent on continue to break down

Integrated and Integral: The Capitals of Mobius It’s not been particularly straight-forward to explain what Mobius is. The answer changes depending on who is asking. Using conventional forms, Mobius can be thought of as a family office, a private foundation, or a...
