    Story

    Hi and thanks for stopping by on our page.

    We're on a mission to help make the practice of mindfulness available to as many people as possible!

    So, we've set up a Community Interest Company called Mindfulness For All, which is going to offer free or subsidised mindfulness workshops and therapy to individuals, groups and organisations in the North West. The organisation has been founded by Gareth Williams and Ann Lowe.

    Research has shown time and again that mindfulness can help people to overcome anxiety, depression and physical pain. It can also help people to cope better with the challenges they face in life, such as caring for a loved one who is poorly.

    But to achieve our mission, we need a bit of a helping hand, and that's where you come in.

    We're not in the business of asking for something for nothing, and so instead, we've written a short book called 'Mindfulness For Beginners'.

    In exchange for just a £2 donation, we'll share the book with you by PDF (be sure to send an email to info@mindfulness.co.uk once you've made the donation and we can get your copy sent to you).

    We’ll use the money you donate to:

    Produce a website and other promotional literature to help spread the word;
    Book training rooms in the North West area to deliver training to groups;
    Book therapy rooms so we can deliver one-to-one support to individuals;
    Pay our mindfulness teacher a basic rate to deliver an 8-week course to people in need, to cover his travel and other expenses;
    Create a set of instructional videos, and other online materials that can be accessed by even more people.

    Sometimes being a human being is just hard, and we're going to try and use our experience and training to help it be a little easier.

    We hope you'll help us a little bit along our way.

    Thank you, and be well

    Ann and Gareth

      Hi there, thanks again to all of our loyal and amazing supporters. We've had a few 'anonymous' donations which is lovely, however it means I can't send the book to you. If you've donated anonymously and want to receive your copy of Mindfulness for Beginners then please do send an email to info@mindfulnessforall.co.uk Thank you x

      So grateful and pleased to say that after just 5 days of Crowdfunding, we are already at 10% of our target from this page alone! Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. We're also got a cash donation tin which is getting a little heavier by the day, and the Waitrose Green Coin scheme is filling up nicely in their Sandbach store. But the best news of all is that we have our first 'gig' set up – to give a mindfulness talk to 85 parent carers in the Cheshire area. All of this for free as a result of you wonderful people! Thanks again x
