The Share Mindfulness Project
In my experience of teaching mindfulness, I have become aware of the fact that access to it can reflect the structural inequalities in our society, and thus the very people that would benefit most from mindfulness often have the most difficulty experiencing it.
I am committed to addressing these barriers, as much as I am able to, in the following ways:
Every year I will endeavour to teach at least one 8 week course without charge. This will be either within statutory services or in the community and targeted at people who would otherwise have difficulty accessing mindfulness, such as the low waged, insecurely housed, teenagers, refugee communities or people in recovery from substance misuse issues.
On every course I teach, I will make available up to two fully funded bursary places, in order to provide accessibility for people on benefits and for whom the concessionary fee would still prove to be a barrier to access.
By taking a class with Simply Mindfulness you are enabling me to continue this project to provide mindfulness to more people who might benefit. Many thanks!
