At our Compassion in Action weekend, we will be launching the Mindfulness Association’s “Everyone Project”, which is aimed at providing eight week MBLC courses to groups who would benefit from Mindfulness but who otherwise would not be able to access Mindfulness training.
in geographical groups, exploring how we can move forward in our practice and lives, and work together towards the cultivation of compassionate communities. As I outlined in my recent email to members, we are often over-focussed and distressed by all the terrible events happening across the world. Here we explore how we can shift our focus towards doing what we can to make our corner of the world a kinder and more compassionate place. If we all do this, what a difference we can make.
The MA is donating an initial £15K to fund Everyone Project MBLC courses and is working with the Hart Knowe Trust to make applications for other funding that might be available for the Everyone Project. Our tutor Chloe Holmwood is taking the lead with the fundraising and so if you have experience of making funding applications and can help Chloe, please do get in touch.
Our resident researcher Dr. Hannah Gilbert will be collecting data about the effectiveness of the Everyone Project MBLC courses so that we can show how the MBLC course can help these groups flourish in their lives.
As a member of the Mindfulness Association, we hope that you will help us to make our ‘Everyone Project’ a huge success. Our vision is ambitious and we want to help thousands of people to benefit from training in Mindfulness so that they can flourish in their lives and achieve their full potential.
