Who We Are
Calm Clarity's mission is to improve collective well-being, develop inclusive leaders, and co-create a world where all human beings and communities thrive together. We combine neuroscience, mindfulness, and leadership development to strengthen the neural networks that enable people to experience alignment and wholeness and harness their inner wisdom to improve their lives and their communities.

Calm Clarity was conceived in 2013 to manifest a vision of a world free of violence, exploitation, marginalization, and disparities—a world where everyone can realize their full potential and become the highest expression of who they are.
To make this vision a reality, we guide people and organizations to strengthen the neural networks that integrate the brain, which we refer to as “Brain 3.0.” Strengthening Brain 3.0 enables people to naturally experience a higher state of brain functioning in which they can be open, attuned, responsive, resourceful, resilient, curious, insightful, creative, innovative, collaborative, inclusive, and inspiring.
Rewiring the Brain to Strengthen Brain 3.0
Brain 3.0 refers to an optimal state of brain functioning in which people are able to:
realize their full potential and manifest a greater vision and purpose
embody their core values and aspirations
navigate challenges and crises
counteract unconscious biases
- heal trauma and change limiting patterns
master their urges and impulses.
We provide training, consulting, and other resources to guide people and organizations to develop and strengthen the neural networks of Brain 3.0. We also guide leaders and organizations to harness and use Brain 3.0 to inclusively co-create transformation at the individual, organizational, community, and systemic levels that move us towards collective well-being, prosperity, and flourishing.
Our Non-Profit Initiatives
For over a decade, we have worked to close disparities in well-being and mental health by shedding light on how poverty, inequality, stigma, discrimination, trauma, and violence impact brain development and functioning, while also guiding people to strengthen and use Brain 3.0 to enter a state of alignment and wholeness that enables them to overcome these challenges.
Our training enables people to access their inner wisdom to more effectively navigate obstacles, actualize their potential, and positively impact their community. To date, our work has benefited more than ten thousand people.
Funding for our non-profit programs comes from donations, the Calm Clarity book and cards, our courses, and our speaking, training, and consulting engagements. Our donors and clients enable us to collaborate with community partners such as schools, non-profit organizations, and workforce development programs serving low-income communities and to provide scholarships for people from underserved communities to take our trainings and courses.
Inclusion: we welcome people from all socioeconomic backgrounds and identities.
Access: we support underserved groups who are often overlooked by premium training providers.

Author, Founder and CEO
Due Quach (pronounced ‘Zway Kwok’) is the author of Calm Clarity: How to Use Science to Rewire Your Brain for Greater Wisdom, Fulfillment and Joy, one of Fast Company’s best business books of 2018. The book shares the story behind her starting Calm Clarity as a social enterprise in 2013 with a mission to improve collective well-being, develop inclusive leaders, and co-create a world where all human beings and communities thrive together. Calm Clarity fulfills this mission by combining neuroscience and mindfulness to guide individuals, teams, and organizations to lead in alignment and wholeness, address unconscious bias, and co-create genuine inclusion.
Having started life in poverty as a refugee in inner-city Philadelphia, Due turned to neuroscience to heal the long-term effects of trauma, graduate from Harvard College and the Wharton School of Business, and build a successful international business career in management consulting and private equity investments.
In addition, after her autobiographical essay, “Poor and Traumatized at Harvard,” became a viral sensation, Due started a nonprofit called the Collective Success Network to support and empower first-generation low-income college students to successfully navigate college and enter professional careers.
Due draws from her life experience using science to address inequity, bias, and marginalization to provide insights on how to steer brain development to build high-performing, inclusive, and diverse organizations. She guides organizations to build cultures that enable people to bring their full selves to work, embody the highest expression of who they are, and collaborate to fulfill the organization’s greater vision and purpose.
Due’s inspiring story is featured in The Portal, an uplifting documentary film about meditation as a portal for healing and transformation.
