The core of the Mindfulness Project is to create a sustainable, healthy and ethically conscious community that serves as an attainable and attractive model for the rest of the world. We believe this initiative can spark a flame of change in the minds and hearts of everyone, beyond cultural, religious, social and geographic boundaries, resulting in a new global consciousness. The foundation of our project is to bring people together in a symbiotic community that incorporates science into alternative living. Permaculture is our compass and following it allows us to produce more energy than we consume and to revitalize soil, water and forests. This philosophy also supports a hands-on way of life perfect for personal and community development.
We use a combination of proven scientific methods for personal development and sustainable, healthy living, such as yoga, meditation, health awareness, nutritional guidance, psychology and non-violent communication. We intend to create a collaborative system to improve an internal and external standard of living. Using ancient philosophies in conjunction with modern scientific developments in the fields of integrated agriculture, green building, alternative energy and recycling, the Mindfulness Project is a revolutionary system that will improve the possibilities of sustainable living.
We are a German Non-profit organization with a spiritual foundation, dedicated to planting 100% of our donations straight into the ground. While the Mindfulness Project is already planting seeds of change in the minds of volunteers and community members alike, we aim to grow this impact exponentially.
What a year! We had big plans for this year until the Covid-19 outbreak changed everything!
13 volunteers and 8 team member where locked in the project and we were not allowed to go into the city, only 2 people were allowed to go shopping, our temperature was monitored every day and one day we had the head of the police, the immigration officers, the ministry for health and the governor in our project.
Some of the volunteers ran quickly out of money but due to your donations we were able to not have to send them back to Italy or the United States. A different kind of charity work and the Mindfulness Project became a refugee camp.
Now provincial borders are open and all volunteers and also all team members are gone home. We try to survive, keeping with only 2 people the whole land going, trying to save what we can save.
Thanks to your donations we were able to buy some protection rubber cement paint for our toilets and showers and so far the structure is ok during this rainy season, beside one room who has damage.
So we have much more time now than usual and right now the majority of our energy goes into helping the Child Help Foundation/Orphanage to survive, too. The Thai people were scared to go there, so they were lacking donations tremendously and could not even pay water or electricity bills any more. Also we are in the process of starting a reforestation project with our monastery together.
Also we use some of the donations to make raised garden beds, buy more trees and still try to get the trees up!
So stay tuned and we will keep you updated and thank you million times for your support which makes us survive.
