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.
Hello Friends of the Mindfulness Project!
After our last close down period we have been working hard on the new toilet and shower block. We first had to remove all the grass that has tried to make its home there during the break, then creating the cement floor in each of the 6 showers and the entrance. We have been so productive that we have even moved on to cementing the floor on the upper level! Your donations have allowed us to be able to purchase the sand and cement needed to create something really long lasting for our guests and volunteers
The garden is coming along nicely, we have harvested our first papaya which is very exciting and tasted so good!
A down side to the rainy season is the severity of some of the storms! Unfortunately some of the casualties during the close down were the sun shade over the mud pits and the roof over the mud mixing machine. They have now been returned to their former glory, or in the case of the roof over the mud mixing machine, have been vastly improved!
Another more creative project we are working on right now and was possible through your donations is the painting of the current toilet block. The grey façade didn’t match our vibrant personality so we decided to give it a face lift :-) The outside is finished and looking beautiful, so we have moved on to the inside. Watch this space…
A huge THANK YOU to all of you for every penny donated. We passionately believe It makes such a big difference to be able to continue our work and it’s all down to you.
Biggest hug from Thailand
